Circus House at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House

Elizabeth Gaskell’s House is throwing open its doors this summer to the world of the Victorian children at play. Every Wednesday in the summer holidays, a range of activities will take visitors back in time to when the Gaskell’s daughters would have played in the House.

Roll up for juggling fun and games with Circus House at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House on Wednesday 2 August.

84 Plymouth Grove was once home to four children who played in the gardens and throughout the house. It’s now your turn to get a taste for some Victorian style circus games and tricks in the grounds of this beautiful historic house.

Families can also make their own trapeze artist toy to take home.

Normal admission for adults (£5) – under 16s free with a £1 donation per child for the activities.

No need to book – just turn up!

9 August – Penny Dreadful! Or, Mrs Lovett’s Revenge
16 August – Victorian Photo Booth, plus meet Mrs Gaskell!
23 August –  Musical Adventure
