A lady, a Trunk and a collection of stories from around the globe.


An interactive storytelling show designed to unleash the imagination of children from 4 years + (and those of their adults too!) A Trunk is a box for belongings, belongings that have travelled far and wide…. Especially when it belongs to this particular lady…


Join her to share in tales of boastful toads; magical fish and fearsome beasts of the wild woods. Using puppetry and the contents of her magical trunk she will create Arabic seas; epic mountains; fields of turnips and the tallest trees. The children are invited into the performance by creating waves, helping to find a suitor for the mouse bride and even acting out a character or two from the stories.


Age Guidance: 4+

Running Time: 60 minutes (approx.)


"Tell Tale Hearts present truly inspiring shows for children that involve the audience in a uniquely thrilling way" - Ian McMillan (poet)

Wardown House

Wardown House, Museum and Gallery is situated in the beautiful landscaped Wardown Park, on the outskirts of Luton town centre. The house was formerly the home of the Scargill family, then a military hospital and is now a museum and gallery.

Step back in time and glimpse an insight into a wealthy family home during the Victorian period. Explore the different rooms with hands-on displays for a fully immersive experience. The museum tells the story of Luton’s transformation into the exciting and diverse town it is today.

The museum also houses a range of displays throughout the building, including the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment Gallery and the popular Luton Life Gallery.

The museum underwent a redevelopment during 2016, reopening in April 2017. Wardown House, Museum and Gallery also holds events and activities for all ages and interests throughout the year.
