SUITABLE FOR

Families

Step back in time this May half term as we bring history to life at Audley End House and Gardens.  Join our Hands on History Crew for a jam-packed week with exciting family events.

Come and hear the fantastical stories from our cure-all salesman as he tells the tales of how he came by the knowledge and ingredients for his Miracle-Elixir.

Listen to exciting stories of Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs, Boreneo Head-Shriners, secret Tibetan Monks and Pirates of the South China Seas. Witness evidence of super strength as severed limbs are miraculously grown back. 

Marvel at the depth of his medical knowledge and wonder at the range of exotic ingredients, all gathered personally from the farthest corners of the globe. Dare you listen to the dramatic adventures of danger, mystery and science as they unfold before you?
