Lynn’s St Nicholas’ Chapel is inviting local folk to put themselves in the dock this May half term with a fun, new dressing-up activity bringing its historic Consistory Court to life.
The court is where people were once tried for grave moral failings such as cutting hair for money on a Sunday and being a nagging wife!
The launch tomorrow (Saturday) at 10.30am begins with the newly-established Cruso Club, a morning activity session for children aged 5 years and over. These children will be the first to try on new costumes and dish out punishments in some fun ‘mock trails’. The morning continues with games and the chance to make a humiliation mask – prize for the silliest one!
The Cruso Club runs on the last Saturday every month from 10.30am-12.30pm; it is £3 per child, parents/carers free, with refreshments provided.
From 1-4pm tomorrow the costumes will be available to all visitors to just drop-in, dress-up and try their luck in the Consistory Court game. There is no charge, but donations are welcome to help maintain the chapel.
Dressed for Court then continues during half-term on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11am-3pm with free admission.
Also on Thursday visitors can meet some Merry Mayors and Bizarre Beasties in a fascinating cartoon workshop. There will two sessions led by cartoonist, illustrator and storyteller Jim Kavanagh; each cost £3 and are open to anyone over the age of 8. All equipment will be supplied.
All the activities are at St Nicholas’ Chapel in St Ann’s Street; to book a place for the Cruso Club or Cartoon Workshop email firstname.lastname@example.org .uk or phone 01553 774471.
