A Halloween to Die For

A Halloween to Die For
Friday 26 – Saturday 27 October, 2012
6.30pm – 10.00pm

Black Country Living Museum hosts a Halloween to die for and visitors are invited to trick or treat themselves to a spooktacular evening on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 October, 2012. Visitors are advised to bring nerves of steel and a little Dutch courage before stepping back in time...

Thrill seekers can book a date with destiny as mystics, psychics and palm readers* set pulses racing. The canalside village casts an atmospheric spell as its gas lit streets throw strange shadows at twilight. Mysterious costumed guides recount terrifying tales of old, whilst ghosts and ghouls lurk in the eerie half-light.

Mini ghosts and ghouls can go trick or treating in the safety of the Museum’s village and collect sweets from the shops, houses and cottages. Ghoulish street entertainment, circus skills, magic tricks and fire-juggling will add a little macabre magic to the evening. Travel by boat through misty waters and into the eerie darkness of the Dudley Tunnel caverns, last worked in the 1800s, for some devilishly good fun and ghostly tales. Expect the unexpected on this unforgettable trip.*

Media Relations Executive Fiona Carding said: “Halloween is one of the Museum’s most popular events and visitors dress up in the most amazing costumes and really get into the spirit of things! Shattered nerves can be soothed afterwards in the Museum’s Bottle and Glass Inn with spirits of a very different kind!”

Tickets for Halloween cost £14.95 for adults, £11.95 for seniors and £7.95 for young people and are pre-book only through the Museum’s ticket office on 0121 520 8054 or via the Museum’s website at * A small charge of £3.50 applies for taster sessions with mystics, psychics and palm readers and additional charges apply for fairground rides, car-parking and for Dudley Canal Trust boat trips.
