Live History Show - an interactive escape room theater event

30th November & 1st December 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


Welcome to one of the biggest events of the season! Ferrymead Park has a well kept secret-their exhibits often come to life and today, they are all walking about. You have been called upon to provide your expertise and keep order within the site. Will you assist Kate Sheppard in her mission of gaining the vote for women? Will Mr. Williams hire you for his law firm? Will the Kinseys need your assistance in their new business? Or will you fail at your tasks and become an exhibit yourself?
The clock is ticking. The sand is slipping through the hourglass. Lives could be at stake; history could be changed. The whole world rests on your shoulders, and time is running out. Will you be in time?

Tickets available on EventBrite :
