This House is a Stage

Insole Court invites you to visit our new permanent exhibition: “This House is a Stage”, an experiential walk-through audio drama that brings local history to life in the form of a dramatic rendition of the rise and the fall of the Insole Family.

The Insole family built and inhabited the mansion, spanning an entire century from their arrival in Cardiff from Worcester in the 19th century.

Along the way they encountered success and disaster, and climbed the social ladder from ambitious tradesmen to wealthy business tycoons.

Now, for the first time since the 1970s, parts of the first floor of our house are open to the public to enjoy alongside the exhibition.

Visitors can follow voice portrayals through the abandoned rooms, experiencing the Insole family’s stories of triumph and tragedy through a mixture of audio technology and drama.

Price: £5 for adults, £2.50 for children under 16, free for Members.
Duration: Approximately 40 minutes

The show is available in both Welsh and English.

Call us on 029 2116 7920 before your visit to check availability and confirm dates of house closures to avoid disappointment.
