Cry Murder, Scream Ghost: Halloween at Charlton HouseLocal supernaturalist and author Algernon Blackwood takes visitors on an evening promenade tour of Charlton House this Halloween in a show recalling some of the capital's most wretched murderers, evil villains and sorrowful victims. In researching his new book 'Cry Murder Scream Ghost', Blackwood has been working in the Jacobean mansion house which is said to be haunted by several spirits, among them Sir William Langhorne, a former resident and one of the richest men in England in the 1700s whose presence can still be felt today. In this historical, scary and entertaining 90-minute promenade performance, suitable for those aged 12 to 80, visitors will meet ghouls and ghosts - and quite possibly witness some paranormal activity - if they've consumed enough alcohol beforehand. NOTE: no performances on Saturday 27th October.

 

About Charlton House

One of the best-preserved Jacobean mansions in the London area, the design of Charlton House is attributed to John Thorpe (1560-1620), the architect behind Holland House in Holland Park. The house and grounds were bought by the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich in 1925. More about Charlton House
