Event description

Description

The 2020 season of the RMH Royal Park Campus, Historical Lantern Tours is now open.

We would like to thank all those who have supported these tours since our very first back in 2011. These people now have a greater understanding of the wonderful history of the Royal Park Campus.

About the tour

The infamous RMH historical lantern tours have returned for their tenth season and run from April until September at the Royal Park Campus.

Join RMH history buffs and story-teller-extraordinaire Jeff Whittington (pictured) from 7—9pm for a stroll through history. During these tours Jeff is known as ‘The Governor’

‘The Governor’ will don his frock coat, vest, top hat, and fob chain, taking people on a tour of the grounds and heritage listed buildings and sharing fascinating stories from the past.

‘The Governor’ will also be assisted by other volunteer actors such as, ‘Dr Stone’, ‘The Inspector’, ‘Fannie Adams’, ‘The Matron’, and ‘The Lady Superintendent’. We also have several other volunteers who work in the ‘back ground’’. Expect the unexpected!

If you are looking for a night of excitement, these lantern tours are a must.
