Halloween Evening at the Museum

Halloween Entertainment

01 September 2011

Dutch courage is recommended for a hair-raising event at Black Country Living Museum on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 October, 2011 when spirited Halloween hocus pocus proves a scream on ‘fright night’. 

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

Mini ghosts and ghouls can go trick or treating in the safety of the Museum’s houses and cottages.  Circus skills, fire-juggling, face-painting, balloon animals, magician’s tricks, living statues and the headless horseman will bring lots of fun and add a little macabre magic to the evening. 

A black comedy is performed by acclaimed Black Country theatre company, Fizzog and the ‘Gormless Horsemen’ will ride the streets once more! Spooky stories are recounted deep in the darkness of the Museum’s mine and a Victorian side show will take place in Folkes’ Park.

Media Relations Executive Fiona Carding said: “Halloween is one of the Museum’s most popular events and visitors really get into the spirit of things with costumes that are to die for!  Shattered nerves can be soothed afterwards in the Museum’s Bottle and Glass Inn where chilling music sets the scene for spirits of a very different kind!”
