Explore the gruesome side of history with hands-on activities and plenty of time-travelling fun for children. Meet Thomas Turlis, the Public Hangman, equipped with gallows, ropes, and the other 'tools' of his gruesome trade.
Be amazed as he recounts the nature of crime and punishment during the Georgian period, when death was the punishment for over 200 offences...you could be hanged for stealing something worth as little as a shilling - equal to 5p in modern money! Follow the Crime and Punishment Trail too - there is plenty to keep children entertained.
Tickets will be available to purchase at the event site on the day.
Ticket price includes entry to the property.
All children are welcome to join the Time Travellers Go… events. An additional £1 will be charged on standard admission for every child, member and non-member, to help us fund this entertainment activity.
