Tales from the Trail

Do you know your grocer’s from your greengrocer’s?
Hardware from haberdasher’s?
Confectioner’s from chemist’s? ……. ( hope so!)
Prepare for silliness, stories and urgent shopping with our Kirkgate characters. Pick up a copy of our free Time Travellers Trail at the ticket desk so you can get involved too!
Two slightly madcap Victorian characters will be on Kirkgate at various times during the days to interact with each other and with the visitors. Short scenes take place, each concerning a story or a bit of fun about objects to be purchased from the shops of Kirkgate, all belonging within our Time Travellers museum trail.
