Sleepy Hollow in The Tudor Hall

Wednesday 31st October, 8pm

‌Enjoy a unique cinematic experience this Halloween with a spooktacular screening of Tim Burton’s classic blood and bustles ghost story in  the evocative atmosphere of the Tudor Hall.

The film stars Johnny Depp as quirky constable Ichabod Crane who is sent to village of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a spate of gory deaths attributed to a headless horseman. With a stellar supporting cast including Michael Gambon, Miranda Richardson and Christopher Walken as well as buckets of blood and scares aplenty, this is the perfect way to spend Halloween night!

The sinister old world ambience of the Tudor Hall is the ideal setting for this film fright night. Having stood through the turbulence of the Civil War when Newark was a melting pot of mayhem and violence the building is also said to be haunted by the ghosts of Lady Ossington and ‘the boy in the dorm’ and, during restoration work, a suspected witch bottle was unearthed from its foundations.

This uniquely creepy atmosphere paired with the hedonic horror of the film is sure to be the perfect cocktail for a brilliantly blood-curdling and hugely entertaining Halloween night. 

The screening begins at 8pm with the bar open from 7pm and will be introduced by historian and film aficionado Adam Nightingale. Tickets, costing only £5, are limited for this exclusive event so make sure to book early.
