The Palace of Curiosities is a representation of a Victorian Style Travelling fair attraction. It is very accurately portraying the sideshows of bygone times
-In other words-
-In other words-
-Some of the artifacts and narratives maybe fake and might have been created by talented artists.
-The stories might have a basis in fact and as such , truth could be stranger than fiction.
- We are so convinced of the authenticity of the artifacts that we will give £1000 to anyone who can prove they are not fake.
-But for the 21st century minded "misrepresentation of goods" lawyers - mermaids probably do not exist - they are biologically more than likely - impossible, (despite there being dog fish, cat fish, sea horses and tiger sharks).
-Also despite being recorded in the Bible - unicorns do not seem to be true, regardless of the fact that across Europe their horns have been owned by Kings , Queens, churches, powerful institutions and The Palace of Curiosities.
-We would like people to exercise their judgement when viewing our very own Windermere Monster and to ask themselves why it is not in a multi million pound visitors center in The Lake District funded by an EU Regeneration Grant?
-However to encourage people's sense of wonderment, we do not remind our audience that life is a little bit less interesting - in the same way we promise not to discuss the Origins of the Red Father Christmas Suit with Children - which is also less magical once known.
-We would also like to reassure sponsors and the public that we do not carry with us any cadavers and we do not contravene the Human Tissues Act 2004.
-Any similarity to persons living or dead is purely coincidental - although we would have preferred it otherwise.
