Culture Warrington and Blackwood Events acting group are giving the public a rare chance to test their bravery at the upcoming free event Rotten Luck, organised as part of Culture24’s Museums at Night biannual UK-wide festival.
On the spookiest night in May, Friday 13, visitors to the museum will be able to see the venue come to life as a cast of actors take them on a journey of corruption, torture and torment during a dark and mysterious period in the town’s past.
This eerie event, set among display cases featuring a mummy, a cursed head, and plenty of scary dolls, has three performances to choose from at 5.45pm, 6.30pm and 7.15pm and a haunting short film accompanied live by experimental electronica musicians.
Museums at Night gives museums and art galleries the chance to come together around a single, simple campaign to attract the attentions of venues, audiences and the media.
Only a limited number of tickets are available for this special event, so a quick call now to Pyramid & Parr Hall box office is essential.
The recommended age for the event at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery is 12 plus and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
Derek Dick, outreach and engagement manager at Culture Warrington, said: “Museums at Night is a great event which we’re really pleased to be involved with here at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery.
“Anyone who comes along will see the building and its displays in a new light and will be given a rare insight into the spookier side of the town’s history.
“October’s event went really well and we’re excited to build on this success in 2016.”
