Last weekend was brilliant: it wasn’t particularly relaxing, but I had a great time nonetheless.
On Friday night I attended the Norwich Ghost Walk, Hallowe’en special. For many moons I have discussed the relative merits of taking a Ghost Walk, but never quite managed it! This year I was determined to make the time though – so as the rain poured down on Friday night, I wrapped myself up and headed to the Adam and Eve for the 9.30 walk, quite prepared to be scared to death.
And to be honest, at some points I was, especially when ghosts and monsters jumped out of bushes! The Man in Black told some sinister ghost stories too, which were accompanied with a heavy dose of am-dram (brilliant fun).
It wasn’t quite what I had imagined though – more than 100 people turned up (probably because it was Hallowe’en weekend) and it wasn’t so much a walk around the City as a walk around a park, but it was still good fun.
I would also have preferred it if the ghost stories focussed more on Norwich, but I guess that’s what you get on a regular ghost walk – I will have to make provision for that next year.
Tickets for the Norwich Ghost Walk cost £6 and are available from Chenery Travel on Castle Meadow.
The walks stop at the end of November – more details available here.
