Ghosts return to The Guildhall for third run of storytelling event

Following sell-out events in October and January, the successful storytelling event Ghosts of The Guildhall returns on 17th April for its third run.

The event is organised by Norwich’s Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART) as part of the spring programme of events at Norwich Guildhall.

Audience members are invited to step back in time and discover The Guildhall’s real-life history, as it is brought to life in 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.

The evening includes visits to the medieval undercroft, Tudor Council Chambers and Georgian court rooms, where these stories really happened.

Sarah Power, Education Officer at HEART, said: “We are thrilled that after two sold out performances last year, this unique storytelling event returns for its third run. On the night, visitors will see the contrasting rooms in the Guildhall, and meet and hear stories from those who have played their part in iconic building’s long history - you are guaranteed an unforgettable night!”

Tickets cost £8.50 including booking fee and are available at http://norwich-heart.eventbrite.co.uk. The event is suitable for ages 16+.
