Meet Mary. She’s a ghost.
It's all been a bit dead around here recently, so she's invited humans along to liven things up. Your task: rally the ghostly community of the City of London, and bring them together for the wildest party of the afterlife.
Multi-award-winners Poltergeist (Lights Over Tesco Car Park, Art Heist) return with a new, completely free, genre-bending audio walk for humans big and small. Download the app, plug in your headphones, and use your new spirit detector to find a host of hilarious ghosts hiding in City of London.
An all-star cast is led by Olivier-winner Juliet Stevenson (The Doctor, Mary Stuart). It also stars Adam Buxton (The Adam Buxton Podcast), Lydia West (It’s a Sin, Years and Years), Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education), Paterson Joseph (Peep Show, The Leftovers), Nina Wadia (The Outlaws, Goodness Gracious Me) and David Mumeni (Dead Pixels, Stath Lets Flats).
Ghost Walk is available FREE to experience until Spring 2022.
Wrap up warm, bring your smart phone, headphones and enjoy a free thermos of hot chocolate!
Ghost Walk is powered by Echoes, and produced with New Diorama Theatre. It is supported by British Land, Arts Council England, with thanks to the Pound Corsham.
