Come to Reginald’s Tower for this prison-themed children's workshop. Get a mugshot taken, be convicted of a crime and sentenced to hard labour making spinning Tops, thraumatropes and button spinners.

200 years ago, Reginald’s Tower was converted into a Police Establishment and Lock-up. From 1819 to c. 1863, Reginald’s Tower was used as a place of confinement, which housed murders, thieves, sturdy rouges, and on one occasion, a goat. For this years Heritage Week, we are highlighting this period of Reginald’s Towers past with Talks, Workshops, Mysteries and Music.
