You may have been on ghost walks or historical tours before, but few have explored the rich heritage of Preston. This city, at the heart of Lancashire, has its shadows, shame and silent sunder.

This Autumn Wooden Spoons Theatre presents sixteen nights of unique and immersive drama, as we travel back two hundred years to bring to life Preston’s violent past.
Two highly animated story tellers will guide you on a dark journey of violence, bloodshed, murder and suicide. Witness the marionettes of murder accompanied by haunting sounds of a live musician. The tales you will hear of are all based on fact through much historical research.

From the beginning we have been following the progress of the Wooden Spoons ‘Cut Throat Tour’ from its inception through the rehearsals and we’ll be there on the opening night of Thursday 19th September to take in what promises to be a spine chilling encounter with the dark side of olden Preston. An immense amount of effort and energy has been put into the tour by all concerned, relentlessly striving to entertain and impress audiences with their given craft.
To set the evenings proceedings with an ambience of mystery and spiritual ambiguity, the tour will commence from Lofty’s Cocktail Emporium in Glovers Court where you may sample the delights of their wares before you set forth on a journey of untold tales of bloodshed on the streets of Preston.

…Dare you go there?
