Performances at the Museum this week

On Wednesday 15th August at 7.30pm, there will be an opportunity to see WITCH, an original play written for performance at the Museum.  The first ever play to have been performed here (that we know about!)  It is a fantastic look at the persecution of witchcraft in the early modern period and is historically accurate, tense and compelling.  

On Saturday 18th August, we have a candlelit evening.  The Museum will be open late and parts of it will be lit with candles to create a beautiful atmosphere.  There is no need to book for the candlelit evening, just show up, pay your normal entry fee and explore the Museum at your own pace.  There is an added extra for visitors to the Museum for this candlelit evening – Ghost Stories!  These ticketed performances take place in the Museum library and involve the Museum’s ghostly librarians telling you macabre tales of mystery and magic from the Museum’s own history, the West Country and beyond.

There are two performances: one at 7.30pm (so you can visit the Museum afterwards) and 9.30pm (so you can visit the Museum before).  Both events are suitable for children aged 10 and over.  

Tickets are limited and selling well, to purchase tickets please visit:
