Guy Fawkes - The Gunpowder Plot

Guy Fawkes

Guy Fawkes might have met his maker at the Houses of Parliament but his story began in York where he was born in 1570!

In this show you'll encounter:

  • How was the plot foiled?
  • Who were the conspirators on a secret mission?
  • What happened to Guy Fawkes after he was caught? (euukk!!)

This is an experience filled with intrigue, conspiracy and danger. Discover The Gunpowder Plot, and what really happened beneath the Houses of Parliament on that November night in 1605.

(Obviously you shouldn't concern yourselves with a certain unlit fuse next to all the gunpowder. Just relax and enjoy the history… it's never been so explosive.)

Guy Fawkes Guy Fawkes will be hiding in the shadows of the York Dungeon…

Dungeons Uncovered...

This show requires our actors to perform some very fast-paced repartee with one very… very special effect. It takes lots of training, timing and comedic ability.

Plus, this show brings out our team's poetic side. Here is our tribute to the classic Fireworks Night verse. (Spot the subtle subliminal message if you can).

Remember remember the fifth of November
You'll love The Dungeons a lot,
We see no reas'n, why you should be freez'n
When gunpowder gets so hot :-)
