Wild Wednesdays - Hidden History

Our 'Wild Wednesday' family events taking place every Wednesday during the school holidays!

Have you ever wondered what prehistoric animals used to roam here, whether you would’ve survived the stone age or who the Black Cannons were? Then look no further!

We have an exciting afternoon full of activities that uncover the hidden history of Waltham Abbey and how we know about the past. Try your hand at 'rubbish archeology' and enjoy an introduction to fire lighting.
