Days Out - Victorian Nights of Fear
28th October until 29th October - Lincoln - Details http://www.lincolncastle.com
Immerse yourself in the Victorian underworld this Halloween for a weekend of fear at Lincoln Castle. Lincoln Castle will be opening up for a weekend of spooky activities to get you in the spirit of Halloween this year. Join the castle, day or night, where a cast of Victorian characters will be ready to greet you and plunge you into the Victorian underworld. ‘Victorian Nights of Fear’: step into the castle grounds after hours where the atmospheric Victorian Prison will resound with the tales of fear and horror. Stories of grave robbing, sinister surgeons and baby farmers by Lincoln Castle’s Victorian cast will be told throughout the night. Visitors can explore the prison where these characters can be found within the cells and open spaces. These two rare evening events also offer visitors the opportunity to enter the grounds after dark and witness a full Victorian funeral each evening. The performances inside the prison will be repeated several times each night. The funeral will take place twice each night at 8.15pm and 9.15pm.

The dynamic and exhilarating duo of Will Pound and Eddy Jay perform at Ropery Hall. Will Pound is one of the finest harmonica players of his generation whose innovative style pushes the boundaries of his instrument and the folk genre. Three-time nominee for BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician Of The Year, he has held the accolades of FATEA Instrumentalist of the Year (2013, 2014) and Spiral Earth Magazine Musician Of The Year (2015). Eddy Jay is a real master of the accordion with the ability to turn it into an orchestra at his fingertips. A key player in the arrangement of the hit stage musical version of Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter (Kneehigh Theatre) which toured US theatres including Studio 56 on Broadway and former member of Newfolks with Oliver Wilson-Dickson, Mabon, he is eclectic in both his performance and arrangements.
