“There must be something really special in this box. If only I could peep inside. If I just peel back the –”

The history of Cornwall is inspiring, exciting and gripping, and there are many achievements and stories that are not told often enough about the people who made Cornwall great. At least that was the case…but now two museum caretakers are arriving for their final day of work at The Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro – and they’re not just going to tell you, they’re going to show you!

Step inside the Royal Cornwall Museum and see it as you’ve never done before with this brand new show by the creator of ‘Trevithick!’ and ‘Kernow King’s Greatest Hits’.

The play will introduce you to some of the greatest Cornish men and women from history – you’ll meet John Couch Adams who discovered the planet Neptune, Bobby Leach, the first man to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, Rowena Cade, builder of The Minack, Emily Hobhouse who pioneered healthcare in Africa, and many more – there’s a character to fascinate everyone!
