What's On

Half Term Story time and crafts

Story telling throughout the day from Rogan Mills, self-confessed “purveyor of tall tales, shaggy dog stories and joyful exaggerations”.

Rogan will be telling stories that might have been told around the Victorian dinner table, and in anticipation of Halloween, expect some added spook!

Get stuck into family craft activities and have a go at dressing up as Elizabeth and members of her family, or even one of her famous friends.

£1 plus usual admission. No need to book.


Wed 25th Oct 11am - 4pm

Family Friendly, Readings/Lectures

We've got a house...it certainly is a beauty...I must try and make the house give as much pleasure to others as I can.’

Elizabeth Gaskell, in a letter to her friend Eliza Fox in 1850.
