Aston Hall will be letting loose its most fearful spooks yet for two after-hours events, where those who dare can spend the scariest time of year at one of Britain’s most haunted buildings!
Fright Nights: Aston Alive! is a completely new interactive ghost story on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October. The one-hour experience will see visitors exploring the mysterious nooks and crannies of the grand mansion in the darkness of night.
Visitors will come face-to-face with Madame Manium’s Maledictorian, an astonishing travelling museum of curiosities. For one time only, Aston Hall is home to this peculiar collection of oddities, which Madame Manium has obtained both from this world and the other realm…
What spooky mischief will these creatures get up to in the ghostly grounds of Aston Hall? Visitors will have to book tickets to find out! Entry times are every half an hour.
Tickets cost £12.00 for adults and £6.00 for children. This event is suitable for families with children over the age of 8, but this is a scare event and there will be jump-scares, creepy characters, darkness, and some of the content will be a bit gruesome. Please consider this when booking.
For even more scares book up Aston Hall Late: Ghostly Encounters on Sunday 27 September. This event will take visitors on a theatrical ghost tour of this haunted mansion where they can encounter the unexpected as they learn about the Hall’s intriguing past.
Expect laughs and scares in this rare opportunity to experience the Hall at night, with the chance to venture into the cellar too. Tours take place at 5.30pm, 7pm and 8.30pm and last approximately one hour. Tickets cost £11.50 and the event is not suitable for under 12s.
Kimberley Biddle, Museum Team Manager at Aston Hall, said: “We’re going all out this Halloween with two new interactive ghost experiences that will send shivers down the spines of those who dare to visit!
“Visitors are encouraged to book early for these fabulously fearsome events. As well as guaranteeing a few scares, every ticket purchased goes towards supporting Birmingham Museums to keep magnificent historic buildings like Aston Hall thriving.”
Children can join in the Halloween fun too, with family friendly ghost tours on Wednesday 30 October and Aston Hall’oween on Thursday 31 October, which will see the Hall transformed into a haunted mansion.
