Friday Fright Night 2 November, 6pm
Join us for some fiendish fun as the ghoulish farm hand will lead you through the candle lit farm and house stopping on the way to hear myths and legends from Shakespeare's time. Listen to stories that may have inspired Shakespeare to create his three witches or the feat of fairies stealing children in the night, all culminating in a Witch Trail. Be careful along the way as there may be creatures lurking in the shadows!
This is a unique evening event set in the ground of Mary Arden's Farm where you can experience the house as it would have been seen in Tudor times, lit only by candle light. Don't forget to wrap up warm.
Tickets: £5, includes mulled wine and nibbles. Booking is recommended to avoid dissapointment and available from Mary Arden's Farm, or phone 01789 293455 to make a reservation and pay on the night. Not recommended for children under 10 years of age.
* FREE ENTRY with our Will-i-am promotion (day time only). Any child (five to 12 years) named William or Anne will enjoy free entry to our houses over the half-term period.
