With Halloween upon us visit Barley Hall this autumn and discover the weird and wonderful creatures of the medieval imagination and their uses in the magic and protective charms.

Barley Hall, once home to monks and a Lord Mayor, will welcome creatures that would have served a purpose in medieval medicine, charms and protective spells. Discover the truth behind the power of eye of newt or venom of snake in the world of magic in the Middle Ages.

This is your chance to get hands on with history and discover the magnificent beasts of the medieval period.

PLUS Magical Crafting

Be sure to explore the rest of the hall and get hands-on with history with some fun magic-inspired crafting activities for the entire family.
