Horror enthusiasts will enjoy a haunting play which is coming to The Continental Pub for two nights only.


The Haunting of Blaine Manor is a tale set in 1953 England where renowned American parapsychologist Doctor Roy Earle is invited to attend a seance in England’s most haunted building with a horrific history.

Locals won’t set foot inside the Manor and Earle’s arrival has awoken something horrific within the walls.

A raging storm closes off Blaine Manor from the outside world while Earle and the others find that what is waiting there is not nearly as horrific as what has entered with him.


The play, written by Joe O’Byrne, won the Salford Star Best Play of 2017 Award.

O’Byrne, from Bolton, is a freelance writer, director, actor, artist and lecturer from Greater Manchester.

He is known for his series of critically acclaimed plays and films Tales from Paradise Heights.

The play will come to The Continental on Wednesday 24 – Thursday 25 October.

Doors open at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £10, with concessions at £8 online.
