Win an Exclusive Cave Experience!

Feeling creative? As part of our ‘Year of Discovery’ we’re launching a nationwide competition to design your own cave carving!

When people carved the cave originally, they used symbols and figures that represented their world and beliefs at that time. And we want you to do the same.

Imagine you were building the cave today. What would you include? Submit a design for a brand new carving which captures and represents you, your beliefs, and the world in which you live.

There’s no age limit, and it can be of any subject and drawn in any style with any media.

Allow your creativity to run free!

The winner will receive an exclusive Royston Cave giveaway:

- A special private tour of the cave, for you and your family

- An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the cave artefacts in Royston Museum's store

- A bundle of Cave publications and merchandise

- Your winning carving made in clay

The competition closes at midnight on Friday 19th August. The winner will be announced the following week. Submit your entries to

Good luck!
