What's On

Nightmares and Nibbles

7.30pm – 8.30pm (bar from 6.45pm)

9.30pm – 10.30pm (bar from 9pm)

This event will be taking place at THE OLD GRAMMAR SCHOOL, as part of Festival of the Dead
As All Hallows approaches, join Dr Frankenstein at this medieval hospital site for a sip and a nibble at the grand unveiling of a secret laboratory.  This lab and clinic explores the properties of the human body and soul creating miracle cures for those daring to try this selection of tasty yet gruesome delights…  

Dive into the Doctor’s reality in this full-on, no holds barred immersive theatrical experience in the medieval surroundings of the Old Grammar School. A darkly humorous bodily buffet will slay your hunger pangs whilst experimental cocktail concoctions will unleash your inner monster.

Absolutely not for the faint hearted! This is the perfect treat for pre-Halloween celebrations or the big night itself…
