The Halloween Tudor Storyteller event presents a mix of spooky and comedic tales from 400 years ago for all the family.

Visitors will get the chance to learn about how the Tudors dealt with suspected witches and find out about ancient Halloween customs. Evening performances starts at 6pm and are unsuitable for children.

There are plenty of ghoulish goings-on at each of the Shakespeare family homes this half term.

Our family-friendly activities are a great opportunity to learn about the history of All Hallows Eve with lots of fun to be had.” -
