A performance of ‘Winter Tales’ comes to Walsall Arboretum this Saturday 24 November and promises to capture your imagination in a wonderfully creepy way.
‘Winter Tales’ is currently on tour in the region and is brought to Walsall Arboretum by Regional Voice Theatre. Regional Voice say that the performance is suitable for all the family, but suggest being prepared to be scared as these tales of the supernatural play out before you and in your imagination.
Councillor Louise Harrison, Portfolio Holder for Clean and Green said:
“It’s great to see the Visitor Centre in our beautiful Arboretum being used for such a wide range of activities. With it being quite a small venue, it should have just the right atmosphere for tales of ghosts and ghouls.”
The Visitor Centre’s café will be serving hot and cold drinks, light refreshments and there will also be a bar available. Doors open at 6.45pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.
Tickets £7.00. Available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/walsallarboretum or on the door.
‘The Sentinel’ is set in Sandwell Valley Country Park. Imagine glimpsing a figure, or the shadow of a figure, running past you, not fully in sight, but it is there, in the woods, with you.
‘The Willow Tree’ weaves a tale of love and loss and it resolves into an eerie redemption. There is real magic in this story and an understanding that are things around us that are more powerful and more ancient than us.
‘The Turn of the Screw’ is American author, Henry James’ gothic masterpiece. It is a deeply unnerving, unsettling story of an innocent, young, Governess who takes on the care and education of two young charges, Flora and Miles. Apart from Mrs Grose, the housekeeper, they are alone in the huge house set in acres of land. But they are not alone as two recently dead people, Peter Quint and Miss Jessel, come as ghosts to haunt them. The result is tragic and terrifying.
