Or, give yourself the fright of your life with the big-screen showing of Psycho in Concert (31 Oct), accompanied by Bernard Herrmann’s chilling music performed live by The Limelight Orchestra.
Crime fans are in for a treat (or trick) with a genuinely terrifying production of Agatha Christie’sAnd Then There Were None (23-27 Jan 2024), the bestselling crime novel of all time.

If you haven’t already experienced Susan Hill’s critically-acclaimed ghost story The Woman in Black (27 Nov-2 Dec), now is your chance. Brilliantly delivering atmosphere, illusion and horror this international theatrical event is not to be missed. Or experience a new way of ghost storytelling in Do You Believe In Ghosts? (19 Sep), a haunting original play that promises to be unlike anything you have seen before. If you need a bit of comic relief with all this paranormal activity, catch the brilliantly funny, adrenaline-filled, supernatural thriller 2:22 A Ghost Story (7-11 May 2024), where secrets emerge and ghosts may or may not appear…
If all of this sounds a little too spooky for your liking, you can still get into the spirit (pun intended) with Buffy Revamped (7 Feb 2024). This funny, satirical parody of the hit 90s TV show is perfect for Buffy aficionados and those who never enrolled at Sunnydale High alike.
