Abbey Park Extravaganza

Enter Edem turned the Abbey Park ruins and historic gardens into a Medieval and Victorian Extravaganza to tell the the story of Abbey Park. Families of all cultures and ages benefited from the free zany activities, learning whilst having fun! Henry the Eighth will ask the question ‘Who killed Cardinal Wosley?’ on a Monk murder mystery tour alongside live jousting and life size Alice in Wonderland chess games … and more! Dog friendly. Suitable for all cultures and ages. Welcoming the whole community.

Supported by Story of Parks and Arts Council England. Story of Parks is a community engagement project which looks to connect local people to the history of their local parks and green spaces. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run through Leicester City Council.
