Spooktacular Half-Term Fun at Berkeley Castle

Sunday 25 – Wednesday 28 October 2020

Past-Times Living History are returning to Berkeley Castle this half-term Sunday 25th – Wednesday 28th October with lots more spooky shenanigans to entertain you ….. so come along for some fiendish family fun! 

Lots to keep your little horrors happy with terrible tales, gruesome gags and scary stories!  Fun, entertaining yet educational at the same time.
Here’s what you can choose from:

  • An audience with King Henry VIII and his 2 beheaded wives
  • Beastly Bad Queen Bess – she is always in a bad mood especially if you don’t tell her how beautiful she is!
  • Grim the Executioner will prowl the castle with tales of gore
  • Wee Jobbie the Gaoler will be looking out for new residents in the dungeon – so be on your best behaviour
  • Take part in the Gruesome Game Show!
  • Henry’s 2 careless wives (they lost their heads!) will chat amongst you, telling the sorry tale of how they fell out of favour with the King and what became of them!
  • Discover the latest Tudor cures for your pesky persistent plagues or pestilent pustules ..... but beware, be she a healer or be she a witch! 
  • Find out what the Tudors ate!
  • Spooky story-telling
