TUDOR HOUSE MUSEUM promises an eclectic mix of events for families this Easter with trails, crafts and live theatre.
Here Be Dragons!
Taking inspiration from a Tudor map of Worcester found at the museum, and the Medieval Mappa Mundi that fascinate so many of us, this Easter’s holiday activities for children are based all around the iconic phrase “Here Be Dragons”, used to fill some gaps in medieval knowledge!
People will follow the trail of strange-but-true place names around the museum before adding their own mythical beasts to our fantastical map of Worcester. Dragon mask will also be taking place throughout.
Entry to the museum is free, Here Be Dragons packs cost £1 each. Open 10am – 4pm, Wednesday, Thursdays and Saturdays, 31st March – 14th April.
Penny Dreadful, or, Mrs. Lovett’s Revenge!
On 11th April, they will be bringing their family-friendly show, Penny Dreadful, to Tudor House Museum! There are chills and chuckles in abundance with this original one-woman show featuring Sweeney Todd’s partner in crime, Mrs Lovett! Be appalled by a plethora of other grotesque characters from the cheap and grisly pages of the Victorian era’s penny dreadful papers, in a theatrical comedy suitable for children and the young at heart. Go on – have a close shave with Mrs Lovett… She’d love to have you for dinner…
With DGitC’s last performance at Tudor House Museum being a complete sell out, we’re looking forward to a packed audience for this one too!
Tickets £10 (£30 for 4 family ticket offer), can be ordered in house or online (see www.tudorhouse.org.uk for details). Performance starts at 3.30pm
