Audience members at Daventry Museum before show.

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.
