HALLOWEEN GHOST WALK 2017 - 'highly acclaimed'

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


When is it?

Tuesday 31 October 2017

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 Ghost Walk will end 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 will be on-hand to explain the origin of Falconry expressions used in Shakespeare's day, e.g. hoodwinked, fed-up, on the cadge and many more.
