£9.50 adults and £6.25 children aged 3-16 years and £29 for a family of two adults and two children. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
Creepy crawlies, ghosts, ghouls and a spooky atmosphere will await you at the Ghostly Gaslight Halloween event at Blists Hill Victorian Town. Go dressed in your most frightening costume to ward off the mischievous sprits, which will play havoc in the dark and watch out for things that go bump in the night. As dusk falls spooky antics are expected to replace the normal everyday activities that take place at the open-air museum. The street lamps will cast eerie shadows at every corner and weird apparitions will replace the friendly Victorians who are usually seen in the town’s shops, cottages and work places. Watch out for the village carpenter who will be nailing victims in his coffin.
