Anna Soden / Return to Elm House

Anna Soden / Return to Elm House


The wonderful ANNA SODEN opens tonight in RETURN TO ELM HOUSE at Battersea Arts Centre playing 1 – 30 December.

An immersive and thrilling quest through our 125 year old building for everyone aged 6+.

A long time ago, on the very spot where Battersea Arts Centre now stands, a brave woman lived in Elm House. As the years ticked by, her inspiring story was long forgotten. Until now…

The spirit of Elm House has awoken, bursting through Battersea Arts Centre and scattering Jeanie’s lost tale behind old doors and down hidden corridors, waiting to be found.

Uncover mislaid secrets, unveil hidden memories and collect the clues to solve the mystery of Elm House.

Featuring magical trails, ingenious installations and original music, this heart-warming new show rediscovers a long lost past based on the fascinating story of Jeanie Nassau Senior, a social pioneer and Britain’s first female civil servant.

Created by the team behind previous immersive productions The Good Neighbour and Town Hall Cherubs.
