As a guest you will see a performance of ‘What Was That?’, which is an exciting and scary historical production that brings to life the history of the Chirnside family who built and lived in the mansion. Filled with lots of scary moments and plenty of comedy, this highly entertaining play (that moves throughout the mansion) will also give a good insight into the life of the Chirnside family in the 19th century. Next door to the historic Mansion is the Hotel originally built by the Catholic Church and used as a seminary for 50 years in the early 20th century.
