The Eden Project is celebrating the launch of Aardman’s acclaimed Early Man film by encouraging visitors to unleash their inner cave man.

Eden's Early Man half-term activities run from Saturday until February 18, and will see the project transformed into a prehistoric playground with no shortage of plasticine. The dome tent in the arena will be transformed into a Stone Age cave, where visitors will be able to daub cave art on the walls, make their own prehistoric accessories and help in an archaeological dig.

Animation enthusiasts can also discover the tricks of the trade and see how the film was made in the studio area. This will feature behind-the-scenes footage and film clips and production art work, providing inspiration for everyone to make their own character from the film in the model-making workshops.

Visitors will be able to trek through the Rainforest Biome to find Schnookle coins, the film’s prehistoric currency, and take part in bush craft and survival skills workshops.
