From hiding holes and disguises to invisible ink and objects concealed as everyday household items; find the clues to uncover the ways that Catholics kept their true religion hidden from the authorities! Plus, see Father Oldorne’s Crucifix, the only surviving object of the thousands seized during the raids on Catholic houses following the Gunpowder Plot. Complete the trail to be entered into the draw to win a £30 voucher for the café. As part of the new display – Hide & Seek: The Aftermath of the Gunpowder Plot.
