Dramatic performances at the Museum coming soon!

For the past few years, we have been delighted to have dramatic performances at the Museum created and performed by our friends at Circle of Spears productions (a Devon based theatre company).

They have created two different performances for the Museum and both are available to experience here this year.

Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.circleofspears.com/store/c6/Tickets.html

WITCH was the first ever play to be performed at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic.  It centres on one case from the early modern period and looks at the perspectives of the accused, the accuser and the judge/Justice of the Peace.  It is intense and unexpected as well as historically accurate and moving.  It has gone on tour, featured in academic conferences on the use of theatre in presenting the past and also been booked by audience members to be shown to their students in schools and universities.  It is highly recommended.  There are only three performances of it this year (each performance starts at 7.30pm) and the dates are:

July 21st (only 12 tickets remaining)

August 15th

September 8th

 
 
The team at Circle of Spears also created a performance of Ghost Stories which takes place in the Museum library on our candlelit evenings.  You can hear traditional tales from Devon and Cornwall and accounts of spooky occurrences at the Museum too!  The tales are told by the Museum’s librarians and you can either attend the stories first and then visit the Museum at night or visit the Museum and then hear the stories – whatever works best for you!  No need to book for the late night, candlelit opening but tickets for the Ghost Stories are best purchased in advance to avoid disappointment (they almost always sell out).  Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.circleofspears.com/store/c6/Tickets.html
