Halloween activities at Tudor World in the 'dead centre' of Stratford. Halloween quiz and ghoulish prize for the children; fortune telling (selected dates); family friendly ghost tours; adult ghost tours and the new 'terror tour'.
Tudor World museum sits in the dead centre of Stratford upon Avon and continues its long history of celebrating Halloween (one of the longest running in Stratford) with lots of activities for young and old alike. Yet it has long been known as a haunted building and much favoured by the local covens, well before the cult TV programme Most Haunted investigated the building and Derek Acorah become possessed by one of the spirits or even before author Terry Deary described it as “the most haunted house in England” on the Horrible Histories guide to Stratford. Sightings of ghosts and weird happenings have been seen recorded throughout the centuries, right up to the present day: including a little girl from the 16th century and a serial killer from the 18th century within the ancient building.
This year’s celebrations are therefore sure to be as ‘active’ and fun as ever! During the day the Halloween Quiz for children includes a ghoulish prize; and a fortune teller will be on hand on selected day. At night a family friendly ghost tour for children with Mr G Buster and spooky tours for the adults through the building’s labyrinth of shadowy hallways take place, all by the lantern light of the ghostly guide’s lantern. On the 27th and 31st the last tour of the evening will be the special ‘Terror Tour’ - new this year! .
