Various themed events relating to the new Early Man film:
Schnookle Quest in our Rainforest Biome
Grab your map and go on an exciting quest to find your own Schnookle coin – the currency used in the film. You’ll journey along a timeline of civilizations, learning about their discoveries and what gifts they passed on to the next generation. Work together as a team to learn about each civilisation, where they lived, how they adapted to changing environments and finally, figure out what to take from them on your journey through time.
Discover your inner cave dweller inside our incredible Cave. Enter through the stone tunnel and get stuck into drawing your own cave art onto the walls. Elsewhere inside the Cave, you’ll discover the tricks of the trade of how the film was made, and watch some behind-the-scenes footage and film clips.
Within another cave, glistening with bronze nuggets, you’ll be able to get involved in an archaeological dig, using brushes to uncover replica tools and artefacts from the Stone Age.

Head for the fire pit in our Orchard and learn the skills that stone age people needed to survive, with interactive demonstrations from the team.
