A scary Halloween will be in store for visitors at the Theatre Royal with ghost tours around one of the country's most 'possessed' theatres.

Audiences can enjoy a spooky tour of the venue, and hear the spine-tingling tales which have been passed down the generations of staff who have worked there.

As well as staff stories, the tours will also reveal the findings of the latest paranormal investigations as they travel through the dimly-lit corridors and rooms of the haunted building.

This fun-filled tour gives you the chance to discover some of the colourful characters of the past and enjoy an entertaining tour of one of Britain's oldest producing theatres.
