A collection of creepy tales from the myths and legends of Norfolk.

TOURING Poster with room for local information.png

The Haunted is a fun story-telling performance of stories from the weird world of Norfolk legends and ghosts.    "My favourite show at The Fringe!" Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2023 audience member


Starting in the 14th Century, real life historical figure Queen Isabella is hounded by the infamous, and possibly not-so-real Black Shuck (a fierce wolf-like creature that roams the East Anglian countryside). 


We move into the 19th Century to a maverick anthropologist, a mummy’s hand and a spot of revenge. 

All of this entwined with hilarious, historical facts that show that Norfolk really is the centre of the universe!


Finishing off down a twisted path in the Thetford marshes with a 20th Century beast, a wannabe crook called Mango and a doggy video deal.  

The show is suitable for small to mid-range performance spaces as well as informal  spaces such as pub rooms, libraries and cafes as long as they are wheelchair accessible. Full technical specification will be made available in advance of the tour.

Running time: Festival - 50 minutes 

Full Show - 1 hour 30 minutes with an interval       Please get in touch if you would like to host The Haunted. You won't be disappointed.
