Bagshawe's Antarctic Adventure


Ever wondered what the Antarctic is actually like? Well, we know someone who can tell you all about it.
Thomas Bagshawe was not your ordinary Curator. He was also an Adventurer. Come and hear his exciting tales, full of humour alongside his friend Max.

They've both just arrived back from their year long adventure to the Antarctic. In fact 2021 marks exactly 100 years since they left on their expedition.

Running Time: 40 minutes

Presented by The Culture Trust Luton as part of Wardown's 'Theatre in the Musuem' offer.

Age Guidance: 8 - 11 years
