“The Mayor had a scare” – Spooky Events at Daventry Museum

Daventry Museum hosted a ‘spooktacular’ performance of the Canterville Ghost, as part of the National ‘Museums at Night’ event and their half term activity programme.

The one-man show, incorporated plenty of character changes, to tell the ghostly story of the Canterville Ghost. A dramatic tale, expertly acted providing chills and chuckles, heightened by the audience joining in and making eerie sounds and spine-chilling screams.

Daventry Museum created a spooky scene on the ‘Wall of forgotten faces’, covered in cobwebs and luminous spiders, leading to the spooky shop, concealing a Victorian Shopkeeper frozen in time.

The show by Don’t Go Into the Cellar! Theatre Company was written for young audiences and certainly got everyone in the mood for Halloween.

Daventry Museum will be hosting another production by Don’t Go Into the Cellar! Theatre Company in the Easter Holidays 2018, entitled ‘Tea with Oscar Wilde’.
