Welcome to Wilfred Bagshaw's Time Emporium
Greetings chronologists... welcome to my Emporium of Time. For those of you that attended my expedition to 1381, I heartily thank you! History was restored to its rightful fulness.
If you are a newcomer - a potential Temporal Sojourner... then please, step inside: you never know what you might find...
AboutWilfred Bagshaw’s Time Emporium is an immersive, theatrical adventure which culminates in an after-party in a sprawling, Victorian warehouse.
Guests will step through the shabby frontage of the Time Emporium, past racks of the exotic, the grotesque... the occult, and encounter legendary Victorian Time Traveller Wilfred Bagshaw, and his Time Portal to The Unknown. They will then be sent on a thrilling, interactive quest in another age: one of ignorance and fear, where disease and rats run rampant.
We are offering the opportunity to immerse yourself in a fantastic world, to travel back in time to key events in human history: to become the protagonists of a truly interactive adventure.
First Expedition – May 1381When there is a threat to history, I am compelled to intervene. I had learned that John of Gaunt - sire of the Tudors, progenitor of European nobility - was unexpectedly due to perish on May 1st, 1381 in Brentwood, Essex. Thus I assembled a cadre of Time Travellers. Their mission: Discover who plans to kill John of Gaunt - and stop them.
My sojourners emerged in an uncertain time: The Hundred Years War raged, sapping the resources of the crown, whilst sickness decimated the peasantry and extinguished the infirm.
One of the town’s three factions - The Church, The Military & The Peasantry - was responsible for his murder. My Time Travellers infiltrated these factions, discovering a plan was in motion to poison John at High Mass. One brave adventurer took disguise as a new convert to the Church, spilling the poisoned wine from John's hand at the critical moment - thus restoring causality.
Yet my work is never finished.... Perhaps you, too, are prepared to help steer the helm of history. If so, sign up for my newsletter. I shall keep you abreast of upcoming expeditions.
