What is it?
Dress up in your most scary costume and head along to the Ghostly Gaslight event at Blists Hill Victorian Town on Saturday 25th October 2014 for their special Halloween evening. The streets, shops and houses of Blists Hill will be transformed into eerie places filled with ghosts, ghouls and monsters. The buildings will be illuminated in spectacular style and fireworks and pyrotechnic effects will light the night sky.
One of Shropshire’s biggest Halloween events, Ghostly Gaslight will keep all ages guessing what spooky encounter they might meet next. Will it be the wicked wizard casting spells, the local carpenter seeking victims to nail in his coffin, ghostly apparitions in the cottages’ windows or zombies looking for brains?
Amazing light and sound effects will change the town’s peaceful streets into shadowy walkways where ghostly characters lurk, while many of the historic monuments and buildings will be illuminated with vivid colours and frightening effects. A family firework show in front of the old Brick and Tile Works, and pyrotechnic displays around the town will also create dramatic scenes.
Ghostly Gaslight is a popular fun family event, so booking in advance is essential (no tickets will be available on the gate). Visitors to the event are advised to park at the Ironbridge Park and Ride, located at the top of Jiggers Bank (TF43QE), where a regular bus service will shuttle guests to the town for a small fee. Limited parking is available at Blists Hill Victorian Town. Visitors should also note that under 16s must be accompanied by an adult to the event and unfortunately dogs will not be allowed.
