MANORMORTIS – HOME IS WHERE THE HAUNT IS

A seasonal chill has descended over the old Haxenghast Mansion as the new owners move in for a spirited celebration of Christmas.  But the restless revenants have been disturbed and are manifesting an all-new malevolence that the Scroungewell family are ill prepared for…

BODY SNATCHERS – PLAGUE

Long before Brimstone & Black’s notorious funeral parlour stood at the end of Knox Alley, the tiny hamlet of Gallow’s Bray lay on the land beneath it.  A dirty den of vice and iniquity, the village succumbed to the Black death in 1349.  Village and villagers were burnt and buried – their cadavers thrown into a communal plague pit where they lay for centuries… until now.

PSYCHOMANTEUM – NAUGHTY NATIVITY

The world-renowned scare entertainment experience returns with a nasty nativity that presents the classic story in true Psychomanteum fashion!  Officially dubbed ‘the UK’s sickest attraction’, Psychomanteum is shocking and graphic in equal measure…

Psychomanteum – Naughty Nativity admits pairs of guests aged 18+ only. Proof of age is required.  Additional charge of £6.00 per body applies.

Jason Karl, from AtmosFEAR! Scare Entertainment, who are producing the play said “staying overnight in the Hall will allow me to immerse myself if the history of the house and will inspire the writing of the play.  Although the story is well-known, we are going to mix in a dose of artistic license and set it at Christmas time for a suitably seasonal chill…”.
