One Bloody Fang After Another

Celebrate Halloween at Wilderspin this year!

A haunting, paranormal force has gripped the town.  The young Lucy Westenra is taken ill and psychiatrist Dr. Seward calls on his mentor Professor Van Helsing to advise.  The Professor has a perplexing diagnosis – Lucy carries all the symptoms of a vampire’s latest victim.

So begins a frenzied stab at trying to uncloak Count Dracula as the vampire in their midst. Sadly, it gets quite “midsty” in Whitby at times…

Bram Stoker’s immortal horror story is given an affectionate lampooning in this physical, riotous comedy. Now, it is truly horrific.

Joseph Wright Hall – The Trust is currently seeking funding to upgrade access in the Hall.  This performance is on the first floor – access is by stairs and stair lift only.  Ground floor toilets with wheelchair access.

£8 / £28 (group of 4).  To book – telephone Hambledon Productions (01472 870935) or call in / telephone the museum on 01652 63517

Barton Civic Society 1969-2019 – Waters’ Edge

Waters’ Edge Country Park was created from reclaimed industrial land which had become one of the most toxic sites in Europe.  Landscape historian Richard Clarke traces the story of the site and the clean-up challenge inherited by North Lincolnshire Council – an issue closely monitored by the Civic Society in the 1990s.  The talk is part of the Society’s ongoing celebration of its fiftieth anniversary, and takes pace in the Joseph Wright Hall starting at 7.30pm

Non-members are welcome (£2).  Ground floor with wheelchair accessible toilet.
