Spooky tour raising money for Shakespeare Hospice

ONLY the brave should embark on Stratford’s newest ghost tour.

After his death nearly 100 years ago, the late Blake Barrington has returned to Stratford to take people on spooky tours of the town.

Blake used to be a member of the Inner Magic Circle and will be performing tricks en route.

The tour will visit Stratford’s most haunted buildings and reveal some of the paranormal happenings witnessed there.

Tickets cost £10 and a donation will be made to the Shakespeare Hospice will be made for every ticket sold.

Call 07860 485578 for more information or to book a tour.

* GHOSTLY goings-on have led to a hotel near Stratford being named as one of the spookiest in the UK.

Ettington Park Hotel was included in the list by online travel agent Expedia.

The neo-gothic mansion was used as the location for 1963 film ‘The Haunting’ and has many ghost stories of its own.

A servant girl called Mary who died after a fall at the property has been seen many times around the house, while two children who drowned in the River Stour in 1800 haunt the hallways.
