Halloween

HALLOWEEN GHOST WALK - 'highly acclaimed'

 Jocasta, Stratford Town Ghost Walk   Herbert Mortimer, Stratford Town Ghost Walk   Vincent, Stratford Town Ghost Walk


When is it?

Wednesday 31 October 2018

What is it?

An entertaining ghost walk around the haunted streets of Stratford upon Avon with costumed guide, Jocasta, Herbert or Vincent.  Discover the buildings seeping with tales of ghosts, witches, murder and misery.  Hear about a haunted tearoom, a witch in Sheep Street, a jilted bride who appears in a local hotel, a young girl buried alive and more.  Good old-fashioned story-telling. The guides are professional entertainers or actors and deliver the tour in their own unique style.

The 2017 Ghost Walk ended at the Arden Hotel (Waterside) for a warming glass of mulled-wine or soft drink and the opportunity to see and perhaps hold a bird of prey (great photo opportunity!)  Falconer Becky, from Hawkwise Falconry was on-hand (with feathered friends Fenn and Puck) to explain the origin of Falconry expressions used in Shakespeare's day, e.g. hoodwinked, fed-up, on the cadge and many more.

Note - the 2018 Halloween Ghost Walk format will be revealed nearer the time.
