The Unquiet Dead

The Unquiet Dead

Join us after hours in Batley’s Bagshaw Museum, if you dare
As darkness falls on Batley this November, there is a distinct chill in the air. Something is stirring in Wilton Park and sounds can be heard from the old museum high on the hill. But who or what is waiting inside?

With two chilling tales from the golden age of ghost stories including M.R. James’s grisly account of black magic in the Midlands Lost Hearts and Edith Nesbit’s haunting saga of thwarted love The Shadow. Performed by storyteller Matthew Bellwood, in the atmospheric surroundings of the museum by candlelight.

Plus, explore the many intriguing and terrifying objects collected by Walter Bagshaw including ancient Egyptian artifacts, birds of prey and an Edwardian dollhouse. But be warned, the exhibits aren’t the only things locked inside the museum at night.

Dates and Times:

Wednesday 15 November 6:30pm & 8:30pm

Thursday 16 November 8:30pm

The show lasts approximately 90 minutes

Recommended age: 16+

Getting there: Bagshaw Museum is set in the grounds at the very top of Wilton Park, parking at the Museum can be limited so please plan accordingly.
