Dare you navigate the underworld of Lotherton, through the graveyard of the forgotten, into the cursed clearing before braving the dark forest, in search of the ghosts and ghouls?

Last Halloween, the spectral citizens of 17th-century Lutherington clawed their way back to the earthly realm, their peaceful rest shattered by the demonic Mazikeen. The demon and his witchy accomplice may have been vanquished, but the veil between our world and theirs remains perilously thin. This year, the ghostly villagers return, grateful for another chance to tread the earth… but they are not alone.

As the sun sets and darkness descends, a more sinister presence lurks in the shadows. Charon, the Ferryman to the underworld, is on a mission, ruthlessly dispatching any who cross his path to the deepest, darkest corners of the beyond. Your challenge? Pay your coin to the Ferryman, join forces with the villagers, and make your way back to the land of the living before the veil snaps shut.

But tread carefully. As you delve deeper into the pits of the underworld, desperate souls will stop at nothing to claw their way back to the mortal realm. Their ticket back? Taking YOUR place.

Keep your eyes peeled and your wits about you. Watch the shadows. They will be watching you.

This Halloween, dare to join us for a night of spine-chilling scares, heart-stopping surprises, and bone-rattling fun. Will you survive the Fright Night at Lotherton Hall? Or will you become another lost soul, forever trapped in the shadows?

Pre-booking a time slot is essential to secure tickets during half term, including members.
