A Night Of Chasing Spirits

Tue 31 October – Pier Eight

If you’re not feeling the party vibes, why not join us as we discover the rich history of the brand, along with tasting some of their exquisite spirits. Ben will be on hand to talk you through the Field to Bottle process. We’ll provide some canapes to keep the hunger at bay as you make your way through the delicious range.

Chase Distillary is based in Herefordshire; a single-estate distillery, all spirits produced by Chase Distillery are made using home-grown ingredients. Chase Vodka, for example, is made from King Edward and Lady Claire potatoes sourced straight from Rosemaund Farm. Williams Gin is made from the fermentation of organic cider apples grown in the on-site orchard.




Seaside Terror

Tue 31 October – The Aldridge Studio

Looking for the full Halloween experience? Seaside Terror is definitely the answer!

His mind-boggling collection of hysterical horrors includes Evil Seagulls, Zombie Donkeys, and Bingo Hairballs. But will anyone who experiences it live to describe it?

Stuffed with fun frights and ice cream chills, Seaside Terror is a celebration of the British horror and British holidays of the 1970s. Funny, nostalgic and visually stunning, Odd Doll use their trademark brew of puppetry, clown and specially composed music to fill the stage with nerve-shattering shocks.




Hedda Gabler

Tue 31 October – Sat 4 November – The Lyric Theatre

Or if you don’t really fancy anything Halloween-esque this year, why not try out National Theatre’s brilliant production of Hedda Gabler?

Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control and manipulate those around her, only to see her own world unravel.

This modern production of Ibsen’s thrilling masterpiece is brought to bold new life by Olivier Award-winning playwright Patrick Marber (Closer) and directed by Olivier and Tony Award®-winner Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge).

From the producers of War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Jane Eyre, this critically acclaimed production comes to The Lowry following a sold out run at the National Theatre. Lizzy Watts plays the title role of the free-spirited Hedda Gabler, one of the greatest dramatic parts in theatre and regarded as the female Hamlet.
