What we’ve done and where we’ve been…

We’ve only been in existence for less than a year but we’re really proud of what we’ve managed to achieve in that time and in such strange circumstances. Thanks to everyone for having us!

Old Royal Naval College – Ghost Stories in the Painted Hall

This halloween late saw a nurse, a sailor and a ship’s captain met in the atmospheric Painted Hall to play music and tell ghost stories as the mists rolled in. Secrets were revealed and a plot of ghostly revenge was uncovered.  It ran for four sold-out performances in October 2020.

At the same time we started First Sundays (which is back up and running this spring and summer) where on the first Sunday of every month you can bump into characters from the site’s past as they bring both it and their times to life.
