Tuesday 31 October 2017,     from 6pm – 9pm (timed tickets see below)

Tickets: £5 Adults, Children £2 *

Tonight is the night when witches ride.

With the Trad Arts Team and Martineau Gardens

Take a ghost walk around the Gardens as darkness falls. Stand in the shadows, the woods or beside the flickering fire and listen to tales of ghosts, spirits and fairy-folk. A rare opportunity to enjoy Martineau Gardens at night, in the company of storytellers from the Trad Arts Team.

Hot soup and light refreshments available or bring your own – drop into the outdoor kitchen to purchase food baked on the earth oven by Lizzy Bean.

After the walk and soup,  stories continue in the storytelling canopy.

Children welcome — if they dare!
