Halloween walks at 6pm, 6.45pm, 7.30pm and 8.15pm
The 2014 special Halloween Ghost Walk is a partnership between Stratford Town Ghost Walk and The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. The evening started when you meet your costumed guide for a ghostly walk around the 'haunted' streets of Stratford upon Avon to discover the ancient buildings where there are tales of ghosts, witches, murder and misery. Good storytelling with a little entertainment. The ghost walk includes a rare, evening visit to 'haunted' Hall's Croft, for a private tour of the building and a warming glass of mulled wine/soft drink. Hall's Croft featured on television's Most Haunted Live, with medium Derek Acorah.
Hall's Croft is a magnificent example of a half-timbered building from the 1600's and was the home of William Shakespeare's daughter Susanna, and her husband Dr John Hall, an eminent physician. There have been many ghostly sightings over the years, including the mysterious lady with red hair and a flying spoon! On occasions, when the house is empty of visitors, footsteps can be heard passing through the upstairs rooms, but on investigation no-one is present. The guides, professional magicans or entertainers, deliver the stories and provide a little entertainment in their own particular style during the walk.
Duration of event approximately 2 1/4 hrs
Adults £14, children £11
Starts on Waterside, near the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and opposite the fish & chip shop on the corner of Sheep Street
