Join the Victorian gentleman at Bury’s Moyse’s Hall Museum for more East Anglian ghost stories by candlelight.

To celebrate the eve of all hallows Moyse’s Hall is holding an evening of stories from the eastern counties to chill the blood of those bold enough to attend. Do you have the nerve to hear tales old and new in a Norman building by candlelight?

Do not worry, the doors will be secured and there are bars on the windows from when the building was a prison. The Victorian gentleman will have the key, so you can relax, do you not think?

If you are curious enough to join the event after the presentation there will a choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink and nibbles and a chance to discuss the paranormal. If you dare.
