I have been fortunate enough to make the acquaintance of the highly esteemed Grymm Tooms Travelling Museum. They are a traveling reenactment-cum-theater trio who, in their own words are:
...a UK-based historical re-enactment group consisting of Grymm’s World of Wonders, Tooms Medical Marvels and the Grymm-Tooms Picture Company, covering the Victorian era from 1860 – 1900 and the Edwardian period 1901 to 1918.
With them travels their museum of curiosities. This features both real and replica items including such highlights as; slippers for those Chinese women with bound feet, the letters delivered by Jack the Ripper to the London Police, mermaids, fake fossils and duck-billed platypus eggs.
Although I have not managed to attend a show, they do a well-regarded comedy-magic-lantern-act. This, as with all their other work, is rather tongue-in-cheek and fondly pokes fun at the history of science. Should you happen to have the opportunity to see their show or stand, do take the opportunity and I promise you won't be disappointed.
