Best Days Out Cornwall

National Maritime Museum Best Days Out Cornwall
When: 25 July 2022

I Saw A Monster at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 11th April 2022

Monday 25 July – Sunday 4 September

I Saw A Monster

Monday 25 July – Sunday 4 September, 11am, 12.15pm, 2pm & 3.15pm.

What was that, what did you say … you saw a monster? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

This summer meet sea monster experts, seekers and spotters who, just like you, have been lucky enough to witness a monster in the rough, wild seas of Cornwall.

But hang on, are you really truly sure it was a monster you saw? Could it have been a shadow? Some floating seaweed? A seal or a tuna fish?

Let’s gather the evidence and decide together if monsters really are just figments of our imagination, or if there could be a sea monster so big and so gruesome it doesn’t bear thinking about.

I Saw A Monster is a brand new theatre performance commissioned by National Maritime Museum Cornwall and written and performed by Illyria.
