Tall Tales, Tiny Tavern exhibition tells the story of Elijah Barlow and his descendants’ quest to unravel the mystery of a stash of hidden treasure. Spanning 150 years of the town’s history the story unfolds through the narratives of the inhabitants of the Sussex Arms tavern, who may unknowingly hold the secret of the treasure.

Inspired by and featuring the Museum’s dolls’ house furniture collection, Tall Tales, Tiny Tavern is an interactive installation in miniature by artist Alec Stevens and writer Jo Kimber commissioned by Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery.

Comprising of 5 large scale interactive sculptures, 3 large drawings, a commissioned film and numerous fictionalised texts this exhibition was well received locally and written up in several regional press outlets.
