Foreshore festival

Explore the fascinating, long-inhabited foreshore at Fulham Palace at this year’s Foreshore Festival from 11.00 to 15.00!

We will be celebrating the Palace’s prehistoric past, in particular the period between the late Mesolithic and Early Neolithic some 6,000 years ago. At the time the Palace was an eyot or island on the Thames and was visited by semi-nomadic herders and part time farmers. They were certainly busy here, using the locally available flint to manufacture tools. In fact, Fulham Palace has produced one of the largest collections of worked flint within the London region, so it has been an important place for a very long time! Join us for some artefact handling, storytelling, craft activities and a foreshore walk at noon as we celebrate all things prehistoric!
