'The Witch' in The Tudor Hall

Friday 25th January, 8pm

Following our sold-out screening of Sleepy Hollow, experience a recent, much-lauded addition to the folk horror genre in the eerie, authentic atmosphere of The Tudor Hall. Set in 17th century New England, The Witch (2015) follows a pilgrim family whose souls are plunged into an intense battle between puritan fanaticism and devilish paganism. With terrific performances from rising star Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) and Ralph Ineson (AKA Finchy from The Office), this chilling film lingers long in the memory. 

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 spine-tingling terror of the film is sure to be the perfect cocktail for a brilliantly blood-curdling 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.
