The Wooden Spoons Theatre company are due to commence their second session of twice nightly ghost tours on Thursday and Friday of this week. Audiences have been enthralled by superb performances of the actors playing in the various roles of the chilling tales of murder and intrigue in the streets of 19th and early 20th century Preston.
The creative director of Wooden Spoons, Sharon Lancaster, told us that the company has created the Ghost tours from scratch without any funding whatsoever to assist local businesses in recession as an attempt to build further tourism in Preston and develop wider regional interest.
The scene is set at Lofty’s Cocktail Emporium, with an air of eerie presence and the promise of dark things to come. All is revealed during the walk by tales told of murder, bloodshed and deceit on the streets of Preston in the grim and shady times gone by. There are blood curdling screams as life ebbs away!
Following a tour finale, one member of the audience commented saying “I really felt like I’d stepped into Preston’s past, the actors gave a truly marvelous performance!”
Why not book one of the many tours now and immerse yourself in an intense ghostly experience as they will continue weekly until Sunday 3rd November 2013.
