New spooky Dickens Catacomb Tour this Christmas for St George’s Hall
St George’s Hall has annunced a new tour of its catacombs that is sure to scare the Dickens out of you this Christmas.
Produced by LoveHistory, the team behind previous subterranean successes at the Grade-I listed attraction, this seasonal treat focuses on the darker, spookier parts of Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story ‘A Christmas Carol’.
Guests on ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Past’ promenade tour will be led through the hall’s eerie underground cells and passageways by a team of professional actors who will bring the novelist’s famous characters and stories to life.
Alan Smith, St George’s Hall manager, said:
“This event looks like being a real festive favourite and what better place to celebrate perhaps Dickens’ most famous work than in a building where he regularly came to read to the public.
“The latest work from the talented and creative team at LoveHistory promises to eclipse previous tours in terms of storytelling, scares and, of course, Christmas cheer.”
Judy McLean from LoveHistory said:
“We’re delighted to be returning to St George’s Hall to entertain and spook visitors this Christmas.
“‘The Ghosts of Christmas Past’ will be our most spectacular event yet as we follow Ebenezer Scrooge’s haunted journey to meet the spectres of his life and heed the messages from the other side.
“This immersive theatrical experience promises a unique seasonal experience with some unforgettable surprises in store.”
The Ghosts of Christmas Past will take place daily from December 12th-18th, with four performances each evening at 6pm, 6.45pm, 7.30pm and 8.15pm.
