A new immersive adventure for children and families.

A long time ago, on the very spot where Battersea Arts Centre now stands, a brave woman known for her generosity, wisdom and care, lived in Elm House. But as the years have ticked by, her inspiring story has been long forgotten. Until now...

The spirit of Elm House has awoken, bursting through the floor boards of Battersea Arts Centre and scattering Jeanie’s lost tale behind old doors and down hidden corridors, waiting to be found.

Join a thrilling quest through the building to discover hidden memories, uncover mislaid secrets and collect clues to bring back the story of Elm House.

From the creators of the critically acclaimed The Good Neighbour and Town Hall Cherubs, Return to Elm House is the heart-warming tale of Wandsworth’s Jeanie Nassau Senior, a social pioneer and Britain’s first female civil servant who fought to overcome the odds and become the visionary founder of modern foster care.

Return To Elm House is presented by BAC Moving Museum
With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.



Running Time: 90 mins
