Join us for a sinister evening of theatre, puzzle solving and ghostly encounters. 

It was 1871, and every level of the pumping station was bustling with activity in preparation for the grand opening of the 100” Cornish Engine, when two unexpected guests from the workhouse arrived demanding to see the small boy who had been apprenticed to the Chief Engineer.

Now, more than a century later, a child’s crying has been heard from beneath the Cornish Engine and it is starting to unnerve the tourists. The Museum has invited the master of the supernatural, Jack Daw, to awaken the past and uncover the truth.

You must solve the mystery in groups of six so bring friends or we can put you into a group with other audience members on the night.

Victorian High Tea is included in the ticket price. Beer and Wine for the interval can be pre-ordered at the cafe between 7.15 and 7.30pm.

High Tea includes vegetarian options. If you have any other dietary restrictions please email before buying your ticket.

Unfortunately this show is not wheelchair accessible.
