Do you want to be a ghost hunter for the night?
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to spend a night wandering within a haunted house, why not get stuck in to a frightening ghost hunt within the empty rooms and locked cellars of Manchester’s magnificent Heaton Hall in Higher Blackley?
Join us on this long-anticipated ghost hunt, arranged by Feelgood Theatre Productions, and immerse yourself in the spellbinding music and darkness. The ghost of Heaton Park will send you on a terrifying adventure, with each step sending you back further in time.
You are invited to discover the Egerton family legend which shrouds their former 14th century, Grade I listed home. Heaton Hall came into the possession of the Egerton family in 1684; it became their home, was rebuilt by James Wyatt in 1772, and remained within the Egerton family until 1902 when it was sold to the Manchester Corporation. Lady Alice is the resident who never left and is reputed to haunt Heaton Hall.
Our hunting party will descend the stairs and venture into the grand rooms of the derelict west wing; burnt out in 1983, it’s an area of the house which has remained unexplored by the public for decades. You will be guided by the team who will unearth the tale, sharing their knowledge and experiences with you. A walk with Lady Alice is not for the faint hearted. Do you dare to join the party?
Heaton Hall is not open to the public; our ghost hunts are taking place at the estate for three nights only between the 29th and 31st October 2016, starting at 5.15pm, 6.30pm and 8.00pm. Children under 12 are welcome with adult supervision. Tickets are limited to 30 per hunt. This is a unique opportunity to explore and get to grips with the strange goings on within this historic building.
Tickets can be purchased from www.jumblebee.co.uk/ghoststory or in person from the Farm Centre Café in Heaton Park.
