Children are being enlisted in a museum club’s gladiator school to discover more about fighting and weaponry.

Resident gladiators will show their skills at two sessions on Tuesday, February 19, at Bourne Hall in Epsom.

It is a chance for the museum club to learn about gladiator fighting, which was one of the defining features of Roman civilisation.
