Walton Maritime Museum (CO14 8PY): Magic Show & Marvellous Museum of Coastal Curiosities

at Walton Maritime Museum

Uncle Tacko and his fleas!

Welcome to the Victorian travelling museum, telling the story of the unique seaside history of the growth of Tendring resorts. The exhibition will be housed inside a beautifully decorated Victorian style side show wagon and will feature visual and audio displays, interactive props and activities, oral histories and individual displays for Walton, Clacton, Jaywick, Holland-on-Sea, Frinton and Harwich. All brought to life and animated by performers from The Grand Theatre of Lemmings as part of the Resorting to the Coast community project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Essex County Council.

To tie in with Walton’s wonderful Lenny Blease exhibition we will have a fabulous comedy magic show from Mark Mark Productions, two fabulous young magicians Luke Grint and Spike Lidington, alongside this we will have story tellers, stilt walkers and much more.

It’s all completely free and courtesy of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Essex County Council in partnership with Tendring District Council.
