Halloween Stratford - Spooky Halloween Events at Tudor World

11th October 2017


This year’s Halloween events at the historic Tudor World building are sure to be as ‘active’ and fun as ever! During the day the visitors can find out more information about the history of Halloween or find out if they would have been a witch in Tudor Times.

The children can follow the Halloween Trail and win a ‘spooky’ prize or join the family friendly ghost tour for children with Mr G Buster.* Spooky tours for the adults through the building’s labyrinth of shadowy hallways, led by the lantern light of the plague victims.* Or for the braver members of the public can even be involved in a real mini séance experience and call out “is there anybody there?”*

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 its ancient walls.
