From prehistoric Sardinian fairy houses to laser-controlled mazes with moveable walls, humans have always been fascinated by mazes and labyrinths, and there are more mazes in the world today than there ever have been before. They underlie the stories we tell, from myths of Minotaurs to the plays of Shakespeare, the Alice in Wonderland books and Hollywood blockbusters. In different cultures around the world they represent birth, life, love and frequently death.

But who is making these complex, confusing structures, and how and why do they do it? Join Henry Eliot, author of Follow This Thread, on a quest for the lost Maze King and a surprising exploration of the history and psychology of these strange but seductive spaces.

A walk into the disquieting world of Mazes in the beguiling surroundings of Burgh House.

The price of the ticket includes a glass of wine.
