Rochford District Council are opening the Old House to the public this Halloween for a special day and evening of ?spooktacular? tours.
Built in 1270, the Old House has many a ghostly tale attached to it – so for one night only the council?s Communications team will be inviting the public to hear these stories and learn about the history of this beautiful building.
The tours will run from 12 noon to 1pm and 5pm to 6pm on 31 October.
Tickets are available by contacting Vanessa Conroy on 01702 318014 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and are priced at ?5 for adults and ?2 for children and include refreshments.
The tours will involve walking and climbing stairs some of which are very uneven so we advise that they may not be suitable for visitors with vision problems or mobility issues.
We advise that the tours are suitable for children 5 years old and over, and it’s at the parent’s discretion to allow them to attend.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Please feel free to bring your own torch! Lights will be off in the building to keep the tours spooky.
Tickets are sold on a first come first served basis and must be booked in advance. We expect this event to be very popular so may add an extra tour if required, so keep an eye on our website.
