Fancy something a little different?

If toasting marshmallows and running away from errant rockets isn’t your thing, how about a trip back in time?

Brought to you by the Award Winning team behind Uncle Richard and The Austerity Games, Gunpowder Plot uncovers the story behind Guy Fawkes and the plot to blow up Parliament.

Claim your seat in Parliament and watch your back as the finest doctors of Post-Tudor spin try to find the best way to put the tale before the King and Country. If they can further themselves or hinder their enemies along the way then all the better. But King James VI (&I) is not easily fooled and has a shrewd eye for intrigue. Countrymen and women insist on remembering things differently and far over the seas in Europe, the Jesuit general and his army of priests are busy scribbling down their own version of events. The plots thicken…

Tell Tale combine primary sources, vibrant storytelling and innovative interaction to draw you in to the Jacobean world of spies, plots and counter plots.

Finally, if all that noise and drama isn’t your thing, then how about

Silent Fireworks!

Hop on the train to Birmingham Botanical Gardens on November 5th for a spectacularly…quiet…. fireworks display!

‘A fireworks display with a little bit of a difference, with no bangers or loud noises. ‘Taste and Liquor’ will be here providing excellent food stalls out on terrace overlooking beautiful landscape gardens all day.’
