We are celebrating the 400th anniversary of Aston Hall with a series of events exploring this grand old mansion’s rich history. Roll up for a Victorian sideshow like you've never seen before!

Be prepared to be amazed and astounded by the Palace of Curiosities. Watch their magnificent show, see a real mermaid, and be astonished by their spectacular display of curiosities. Seeing is believing!

Meet Queen Victoria as she graces Aston Hall with her presence. Find out about her two visits to the Hall; once as Princess and once as Queen in 1858.

Aston Hall is open from 11am-4pm with last entrance to the Hall at 3pm. Our Tea Room and Gift Shop will be open from 11am until 4pm.

Pre-booking is not essential but highly recommended because we anticipate that this event will be very popular. This event is free to Birmingham Museums members. Tickets are non-refundable.

Please note the date of this event is subject to change depending on Aston Villa match fixtures. Bookings open in June once the date has been confirmed.
