Grab your objects, stick them together and then let their shadows dance!

Many a magical explorer and curious adventurer have made their home within the Coach House at The Whitaker. Each one on a mission of discovery, and its current inhabitant is no exception.

Professor Jigget arrived at the Coach House to study and document the mysterious Faerie Folk of the surrounding park and gardens. And this he has done! But, when the time came for him to leave, the Professor found that he couldn’t.

There was something special about The Whitaker that made him want to stay. It was a curious kind of place.

Filled with questions to be asked, problems to be solved, things to create and places to play. And so, the Prof. stayed and now invites you to help him in his investigations and explorations.

The question is… are you curious enough to join him?
