"Welcome to the Museum of Everything; feel free to wander round our many galleries and experience the history of everything. Children are welcome, but please keep them in the bags provided."
Here is the critically acclaimed comedy sketch show written and performed by Danny Robins, Dan Tetsell, and Marcus Brigstock - the team behind BBC2's We Are History. Based on the successful Edinburgh Festival show, it's a sketch show in disguise, themed around the world of museums, galleries, guided tours, stately homes, historial re-enactors, and obsessive collectors, and set in the vaguely mystical and apparently infinite environs of the Museum of Everything.
Our guides are a pair of long-suffering, underpaid West Country museum attendants, who pop up to remind us of museum rules, announce forthcoming attractions, and reassure us that it's never far to the promised land of the gift shop, where you can buy leather bookmarks, novelty pencil sharpeners and fudge in the shape of Jane Austen.
