Adult Halloween Events

Be spooked at this haunting time of year in Lancaster. Brave adults and big kids can be taken through tales of witches, ghosts and murder whilst walking the streets of Lancaster or go on a ghost search at one of the city’s many historic pubs.  Check out what’s on:


Dracula: The Bloody Truth


Stop what you’re doing and read this very carefully. Your life may depend on it…

This critically acclaimed, multi five star awarded hilarious comedy will be presented by Professor Abraham Van Helsing and his three idiotic actors as they stage a life-changing, theatrical production surrounding the true events of Dracula. Will they pull if off? It’s highly unlikely!

With four actors playing over forty characters and directed by one of the UK’s most exciting comedy directors, John Nicholson, Dracula: The Bloody Truth will make you die laughing.


Dark Tales Dinner

This Halloween why not let Tabitha and Isadora send chills down your spine? Join them for an evening of grizzly tales from Lancashire’s murky past – with a healthy side order of dark humour! Ghosts, murder and witches – the perfect spooky treat!

Enjoy a 3-course dinner within the spectacular surroundings of The Royal Kings Arms Hotel, whilst being entertained and enthralled.

Suitable for adults and brave children 12+ at adults discretion.


Murder Mystery Cruise

Welcome on board for some mystery and mayhem. Join “After Dark Murder Mystery Events” on board along with an “award winning” Fish and Chip Supper and a mystery to solve.

The theme of the cruise is the Manor House Murder – Did the butler do it? Not in this case. One of the family wanted his Lordship dead in order to get their inheritance and stop him meddling with their life. The only way you’ll solve this crime is by talking to the servants and finding out which of their gossip is true and who had the most to gain.


Guided Tour of Lancaster Castle

Why not take a tour around one of the UK’s most significant historic monuments?

Join knowledgeable and friendly costumed tour guides and be taken through tales of witchcraft, religious persecution, crime and punishment, rehabilitation and release throughout the ages. You might even get to stand in the dock, raise your left hand to be sworn in, and learn the true meaning of being ‘sent down’. Guided Tours are available all year round but Halloween makes them extra spooky.

Adult-only tours run at 7pm, 7.30pm and 8pm.
