Bourne Hall Museum Club

The Club for young people 8+ who love history

We are the club for children 8 to 12+ who have an interest in history, and we are thriving at Bourne Hall Museum (Opens in a new window). We started in the middle of last year with a group of 17 at its first meeting and now we have between 30 to 40 children coming to each session, and more than ninety on our mailing list. We cover all periods of history from the dawn of the Stone Age to the Home Front and World War 2. Club members have learned how to make Stone Age tools and cave painting, found out what the trenches were like during WW1, joined the Roman Army, lived through the Dark Ages, re-fought the Battle of Hastings, and gone on local history patrols visiting Ewell's historic houses and graveyard before being locked up in the old Watch House jail. They recently investigated the murder of Station Sergeant Thomas Green, who was killed in defense of Epsom Police Station when it was attacked by hundred of Canadian solders in 1919.

The club usually meets the second Saturday of the month at Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell KT17 1 1UF. Sessions last from 1.00 pm to 2.30 pm and there is a charge of £5 per child per meeting.
