A heritage day of events throughout Ewell Village including Bourne Hall, the Watch House and The Grove

A full range of Bronze Age crafts will be demonstrated by James Dilley with fellow living history expert. The living history display is filled with replica and reconstructed objects from prehistory and James is on-hand (dressed in accurate Bronze Age clothing of course) to explain the archaeology behind it all.

Meet the new Roman governor of Britain as he stops over in Ewell, protected by members of the Praetorian Guard, to make an offering to the sacred springs.

Take the chance to sample eighteenth-century justice first hand in Ewell’s historic watch house before moving on – if you can. The watch house will be occupied by highway robbers captured after a huge manhunt by the Ewell Watch following assaults on the road to Epsom… they are to be taken to the courts at Southwark where justice awaits them and perhaps the drop.

Meet a small group of WW1 soldiers in their encampment, discover what the Great War was like, and see their equipment and weapons.

Nearby you will find a group of Land Army girls from whom you can discover what life was like on the farm during WW2.

Meet some men from the Hampshire Regiment who will describe what it was like at the Battle of Arnhem, with a display of their weapons and tales of how they survived.

Visit Ewell’s own space ship at Bourne Hall, drop into the Library, try Roman children’s activities, and discover the past of Epsom and Ewell at Bourne Hall Museum.
