Fright Night at the Museum

26 Oct 2018 - 31 Oct 2018

Scared of your own shadow? …check

Jump out of your skin at the pop of a balloon? …check

Let your own imagination get the better of you? … check

Are you afraid of the dark? … check

Then allow us to accommodate you on our first ever Fright Night at The Museum.

So you think you know the museum? Have you ever wondered what happens in the museum once the sun has gone down and not a living soul is about? Would you dare to follow a trail of terror to explore our site and find your way around our buildings unguided with just your friends for company? Can you hold your nerve whilst the dark shadows reveal the true goings on at The Fright Night at the Museum? This is a unique opportunity to see the museum in a different light….in fact in no light at all!

Have you the nerve to face the Victorian House of Horrors secrets, what’s creeping in the conservatory? What are the guests having for dinner?  Will you be getting your just deserts! Do you have what it takes to navigate around in the silent spooky surrounds of our hysterical historical site! Can you pass the Witch finders test, will you sink or swim?

Why is the Bone building named so? Can you avoid a deadly diabolical disease?

Sign up today ……..it might not be just the cold that’s the death of you!
