Ghostly Tales of Gloucestershire

Friday 13 May

8pm, Museum in the Park, Stroud

Whether it’s white ladies or old ladies, monks or miners, blacksmiths or beggars, horses or hounds, priests or poltergeists, unwilling brides or all too willing femmes fatales, Gloucestershire’s hidden places are seething with spooks. Fire Springs storytellers Anthony Nanson and Kirsty Hartsiotis tell a spooky selection of the county’s creepiest ghost stories. You won’t look at Gloucestershire’s towns and landscapes the same way again, especially after dark.


Not suitable for under 12s. Booking advised to be sure of a seat, please call on 01453 763394.

Part of Museums at Night, the annual UK-wide festival of inspiring after-hours events, designed to encourage people to see arts, culture and heritage in a different light.
