Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

On All Hallow’s Eve, the only night of the year dedicated to telling stories of the dearly departed and reading the fortunes of friends, you can experience Dickens’s beautiful townhouse as if the author himself had just stepped out the door.

Experience just what it was like to be in a Victorian home after dark as you delve into the unseen mysteries of the future with the popular Victorian past time of tarot card readings with our fortune teller. Work your way through the eerie depths of the historic house for some beloved Dickensian storytelling apt for Halloween. Acclaimed actor and performer Dominic Gerrard will be performing dramatic extracts cut from many a frightening tale from The Signalman, The Monkey’s Paw, The Ghost in the Bride’s Chamber and The Ensouled Violin to much much more… Interspersed with a live score, and performed in the dark, these stories will delight and fright guests in equal measure.

And if that’s not enough, we bring you an added touch of truly Halloween magic as our silhouette cutter creates glamorous portraits in mere minutes to be taken away as a souvenir! End your night with a drink or two at the candlelit bar. Entry is timed and we request you arrive promptly, once in you're welcome to stay for the duration of the night.
