Ted Coney's Virtual Tour

 

Ted Coney's Tour 

Sadly, due to the pandemic we didn't see Ted with his wonderful Morris Minor promoting his gallery and launching the popular Isle of Ely Arts Festival 2020. However, you can still see Ted’s family paintings by taking the virtual tour from his website. At the cost of 99p, with all proceeds going to NHS Charities Together, you get to experience four of Ted’s paintings, in a nine minute film.  In the virtual tour Ted appears ‘flying’ back in time in his Morris to  1930s Hollywood, to explain about one of his paintings entitled ‘Dear Reginald Owen’.

Escape Room

 

At Oliver Cromwell's House

Here's a snippet about the plot! It's 1910 and the Vicar of St. Mary's Church has rented the Tithe Room out of the Vicarage to his dear friend, Curator Cornelius Chadwick. After a few weeks, he mysteriously disappears! Come and search for clues, solve the puzzles and discover the whereabouts of the enigmatic Curator. Sessions are priced at £85 per group for the remainder of this year. Sessions are for groups up to 6 people only. To find out more then please click on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). To discuss your requirements, call us on 01353 662062.
