Groups who enjoy an immersive spooky experience can take advantage of a Halloween event at Blists Hill Victorian Town.
Groups are invited to dress up in scary costumes and go along to the Ghostly Gaslight Halloween night at the Victorian Town, one of Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge Museums, on the evening of 28th October.
Blists Hill’s streets, shops and houses will be transformed into eerie places filled with ghosts, ghouls and monsters.
Ghostly Gaslight will feature a number of spooky encounters, which could be a wizard casting spells, the local carpenter seeking victims to nail in his coffin, ghostly apparitions in the cottages’ windows or zombies walking the Blists Hill streets.
Light and sound effects will change the town’s peaceful streets into shadowy walkways where ghostly characters lurk, while many of the historic monuments and buildings will be illuminated with vivid colours and frightening effects.
A firework show in front of the old Brick and Tile Works and pyrotechnic displays around the town will also create dramatic scenes.
Ghostly Gaslight will take place between 6pm and 9pm on 28th October. A ten per cent discount is available on bookings for groups of 15 or more people. Coaches can drop-off visitors near the entrance to Blists Hill, before moving to the free coach park nearby.
Groups enjoying an extended visit in this area of Shropshire might like to pair a visit with Blists Hill’s annual Fireworks Night, falling this year on Saturday 4th November.
This event offers visitors the chance to explore the town’s atmospheric buildings and talk to the townsfolk in their cottages, shops and other places of work, before watching a fireworks display accompanied by music, from 7.30pm.
Organisers seeking tickets for either event should contact group visits officer Ben Walker on 01952-435900 or email email@example.com to make a booking.
