Barley Hall to become a “Haunted Hall” this Hallowe’en
9:44am Monday 25th October 2010 in Ghosts & UFOs
Three of York’s oldest sites are playing host to a spine-chilling series of events this Hallowe’en. York Archaeological Trust has organised a spooky programme of events to be held at Micklegate Bar Museum and medieval Barley Hall and is working with City of York Council to promote York Mansion House’s Hallowe’en event.
Micklegate Bar Museum’s Ghoul School for children aged between seven and 12 will invite youngsters to prepare for Hallowe’en and make revolting and gory props. Barley Hall will be transformed into a Haunted Hall where visitors will be led around the darkest depths of the candlelit medieval town house by the expert ghost guide.
York Mansion House will be exposing its more murky secrets with an eerie tour by candlelight.
Pre-booking is essential for the Barley Hall and Mansion House evening events through www.jorvikbookings.com.
Sarah Maltby, director of attractions at York Archaeological Trust, “This programme of events will definitely give the thrill seeking of visitors a Halloween to remember. Each venue comes with its own interesting past and chilling tales.”
