Search for the Lost Tomb (or, When did you last see your Mummy?)
Suitable for ages 7 to 12 years
Meet up with our dotty professor and her faithful companion on the banks of the Nile. Enjoy thrills and spills as they venture into ancient Egypt and stagger upon the secrets of the pyramids.

Just to say a huge thank you for yesterday.
We had a fabulous morning, filled with fun, laughter and facts galore. Wow! What a lot of info you guys pack into the show.
The children loved the play, and it was testament to the actors' energy and enthusiasm that the children sat so still and focused for the whole of the performance.
The workshop was great; we were so lucky with the weather and were able to be outside.
Please pass on our most sincere thanks to the actors.
We will be in contact with you for the same time, same place, same show next year!
Huge thanks and very best wishes
