Ghost stories with Bill Spectre at Cogges
Join Bill Spectre whose multi award winning Oxford Ghost Trail has been named by TripAdvisor as one of 10 best in the World, for an evening of two classic Victorian Ghost Stories.:

- The Judges House by Bram Stoker, who brought us Dracula. 'Not there! she said, and grew pale as she spoke….


- The Monkey's Paw by WW Jacobs. Beware of what you wish for….it might come true!

Doors open 7pm, when you're invited to explore Cogges by night and enjoy light refreshments in the manor house, and the performance will start in the wheat barn at 8pm.

Reviews from Bill Spectre's ghost story evenings:

"Bill was a brilliant storyteller who kept everyone motionless in their seats throughout the evening. Not sure when I last heard storytelling like this - a rare skill in the modern world."
"Spectre's delivery had his audience transfixed... This was compelling entertainment."

Tickets are £10 (including welcome drink), available online or at the Cogges welcome desk. 10% discount for Cogges season ticket holders. Please note, the performance will be in the Cogges barn, so wrap up and get ready for a spooky evening of spine tingling fun!

Recommended age 14+.
