Spend the scariest time of year at one of Britain’s most haunted buildings! Are you brave enough?

Madame Manium’s Maledictorian

The year is 1858 and Aston Hall is being visited by the extraordinary Madame Manium and her Maledictorian – an astonishing travelling museum of curiosities. Manium’s collection of oddities have been obtained both from this world and from the other realm. Some are alive, some are not. They are a sight to behold; both macabre and marvellous.

What will happen when this peculiar collection is housed in one of Britain’s most haunted buildings? Are you brave enough to explore this grand old mansion in the darkness, lit only by flickering lamps? Will you encounter Manium? The resurrected man? The conjurer? The…thing?

Prepare for laughs and scares as you walk around the mansion late at night. Will it be at your leisure or THEIRS?!? 

Be sure to book your ticket in advance. Ticket entry times are every half an hour from 5pm until 9pm. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your timed slot; late comers may not be admitted. We anticipate your visit around the Hall will take approximately 1 to 2 hours. 

Pre-booking essential - Fright Nights take place on 25th and 26th October - both dates are now sold out.
