Magic & Mystery

Discover Barley Hall in a new light when this reconstructed 15th century building is lit only by beautiful candlelight for a truly atmospheric evening celebrating the coming of All Hallow's Eve.

Traditionally, Halloween has been seen as a time when the separation between the spirit world and our own is at its most porous, allowing apparitions to flow through the barrier and cause mischief in the run up to All Souls Day at the beginning of November.

Explore the Hall and exhibition at your own pace by the warm candlelight then be sure to visit the tavern bar in the Steward's Room, serving a selection of ales and mead as you take your time and enjoy the magical ambience.

PLUS Magical Crafting

Be sure to explore the rest of the hall and get hands-on with history with some fun magic-inspired crafting activities for the entire family.

Pre-booking is recommended due to limited capacity.
