NARNIA: A Voyage of Discovery, Cair Paravel Thrones Scene

This unique interactive, imaginative and immersive NARNIA exhibition includes dressing up, role play, and audio-visual elements. The exhibition consists of a series of discrete dressed scenes based on C S Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, largely representing the original illustrations by Pauline Baynes.

Come and step into the snowy landscape of Narnia! Collect your Narnia Identify Card, put on one of our coats and go through the wardrobe to enter the cold wintery world of Narnia, where it is ‘always winter, but never Christmas’. Sit in the White Witch’s sleigh, listen to the crunch of the snow as you watch real Arctic scenes of the film ‘All Aboard! The Sleigh Ride’. Become Mr Tumnus or Mr and Mrs Beaver, or role play having tea with them! Sit on the White Witch’s throne, or become one of the Kings and Queens of Cair Paravel. Finally, can you find the secret Narnia message hidden in the displays?

This exhibition is open to ALL visitors young and older and is certainly not to be missed!
