Tea & Theatre at the Royal Gunpowder Mills

June 12 & 13

On tour from Canada: Live History Theatre Company present



A brand new theatre experience comes to the Royal Gunpowder Mills June 12 & 13 as we experience Live History’s show ‘Circa.’

History comes alive when a worker from the Royal Gunpowder Mills is transported from the past to experience the mysterious present, with many twists and turns along the way. This captivating show is not one you will want to miss!

“It’s almost closing time at the Royal Gunpowder Mills when at the museum you run into a strange figure, dressed in period clothes and seeming confused. The mysterious character, identifying only as Circa, is horrified to discover she is in the modern era, and many of things she remembers and love are now behind glass. She has no recollection of who she is, or how she got there. Only items from the past seem to trigger memories and stories about her identity. Stay with Circa for anecdotes from the main exhibit’s time period, and travel through other exhibits, searching for clues. Make sure to avoid the security guard at closing time in order to help Circa find her identity; the ultimate treasure”

Alongside this wonderful theatrical experience and as part of your ticket price, enjoy refreshments, and - for the 12.00 and 2.00 shows - the option of a 40 minute guided tour of the Royal Gunpowder Mills on our Landtrain (additional charge of £2 will apply, payable on the day).
