Digital Ghost Hunt
Creaks in the corridors, a shadow on the stairs… Something strange is happening at York Theatre Royal.
Renowned actor and ghost geek Julian Fitzmaurice leads an expedition exploring the spooky goings on which have happened at the theatre over the centuries. Only the bravest adventurers need apply!
This August, sneak backstage to investigate the Theatre Royal’s haunted history with this immersive theatre adventure. It’s for ghost hunters and their families aged 8 and up.
Can you find the illusive ghost of The Grey Lady? Or perhaps glimpse the ghost of a legendary actor from the past, practising their lines in the wings? Join us to explore the theatre’s ancient nooks and hidden backstage areas with lots of surprises along the way.
This family immersive experience may contain spooky moments and is best for ages 8-12 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Part of our 275th Birthday Celebration Weekend. Find out more about what else we’ve got going on to celebrate our BIG birthday here.
