What’s happening?

These spooky strolls will take you around the museum, before heading out into the city and finishing up at Blackfriars Priory for Halloween Hot chocs with all the trimmings! Extend your stay with us by purchasing tickets to the daily 4pm family-film, Onward, at the Guildhall…

So why not put on your best creepy costume and join in the fun! There will also be a Murder Mystery night at Blackfriars on Saturday 31 October plus a one-off ‘Shaun of the Dead’ screening at the Guildhall.)
