I Wonder Wednesday: Magic or Medicine

Wednesday 30 October

Ever wondered why men and women were accused of witchcraft at different times in our history? Join us for this exciting family event to find out more about beliefs, superstitions and the fear of witchcraft in Tudor Times! Discover the healing properties of everyday remedies and help us to uncover if our resident Museum Witch is truly a witch, or perhaps a wise woman? Meet her accusers in the Crofters’ Cottage and have a go at some creative crafting.

Drop in anytime between 11am and 3pm to meet our Tudor inhabitants.

These family-friendly activities are most suited to children aged 5+.

Normal Museum admission prices apply or visit for FREE with your valid annual pass. All tickets provide unlimited Museum entry for 12 months from date of purchase.
