About Hands On Heritage Festival

Join archaeologists at Thornton Road Community Centre for our family friendly and free event to discover more about ongoing excavations at Draffan Farm, Blackwood.

Get hands-on with some of the unearthed artefacts - from Bronze Age pottery to a Victorian coin.

Have a go at making your own decorated pre-historic pottery.

Help us choose a name for the 'Draffan Dug'... find out more @CLUTHA2018. Best name wins a prize!

And lots more! Pop down!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hands On Heritage Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
