Discover the workings of the massive Cornish Wheel that powered mining operations. Then in the courtroom experience the high drama re-created in this sombre setting, once ruled by Judge Begbie, the famous "Hanging Judge." New productions are staged each summer.

Just south of Quesnel in the community of Kersley you can see the noted Kersley Players.
