7.30pm for 8pm start
Step back in time and discover Norwich Guildhall's real-life history in this special storytelling event. Hear tales from the ghosts of those who walked the chambers or were held in the cells.
Meet Mayor Augustine Steward, witness to the most dangerous times in the city's history; Martha Sheward, mysteriously hewn and buried under your feet; and martyr Thomas Bilney, held prisoner in squalid conditions and sentenced to a most gruesome of deaths.
You'll visit the medieval undercroft, Tudor Council Chambers and Georgian court rooms, and see where these stories really happened.
The evening begins and ends in the fully-licensed Caley's Cocoa Café bar which will be serving hot drinks and alcohol.
Doors open 7.30pm for a prompt 8pm start.
Suitable for ages 16+.
£8.50 per ticket.
Price includes booking & admin fee.
Please note that The Guildhall is a Grade I listed building, and currently is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. There are also many steep uneven steps to negotiate during the event, including spiral stairs down to the undercroft.
