Ghost Night

Saturday 31st October, 6-9pm

Come to Avoncroft in the evening of the 31st October for the new Ghost Night event.

The new event will allow visitors to make their way around the dark and mysterious site between 6pm and 9pm on the 31st October and experience the strange and haunting stories from the midlands past.

Will you discover the horror stories of where you are from?

It is also a rare opportunity to see our buildings as they would have been when occupied at night.

Tickets are available for this event on the link below at the price of £5 per person.


Bonfire – cancelled

Due to Covid-19 restrictions on Social Distancing we have made the difficult decision to cancel Bonfire Night this year. Despite looking for ways around this we have sadly come to the conclusion that it is not possible whilst keeping people safe.
