Get ready for a prehistoric adventure of epic proportions at Eden this half-term, in association with Early Man, the major new film release from Nick Park and Aardman, in cinemas now.

Join us for Early Man at Eden this February half-term (10-18 February 2018), and alongside lots of fun activities inspired by the film, you’ll find out all about Hognob, Dug's trusty sidekick, and get the chance to try your hand at making him in our model making activity.

Snap a picture of your creation in an imaginative spot at Eden and you could win an Early Man goody bag, including a tote bag, Early Man poster, a clay kit to make your own Dug, a Hognob plush toy, a footbag, a Dug & Hognob tribal scratch art kit, and Early Man stickers!
