HALLOWEEN FESTIVAL 2015
Halloween is sure to be a spooky event at Tudor World in Stratford-upon-Avon, cited as the ‘Most Haunted building in England’ by Horrible Histories Author Terry Deary.
The tradition of bonfires, ghosts and otherworldly phenomena held a special place for the Tudors. In Tudor England the Twelfth Night marked the end of an autumn/winter festival that started on All Hallows Eve, which is now celebrated as Halloween: the day when the veil between the worlds becomes the thinnest and the souls of the dead supposedly returned to walk the earth. Various masks were worn and bonfires lit to ward off evil spirits.
With that in mind, Tudor World will be having lantern lit ghost tours of the ancient building; ghost tour of the town; family friendly ghost tours; Halloween shows about some of the darker side of the Tudors; plus a trail and prizes for the children. Anyone feeling really brave has the opportunity to attend overnight ghost hunts until the wee hours!
With numerous paranormal investigations, ghostly sightings and books written about the property, as well as appearing on the hit TV Show Most Haunted Live, Tudor World is the place to be on Halloween.
