The Natural Theatre Company will bring a very different experience to the caves of Cheddar this October half term – a Halloween Spooktacular, during which visitors will meet some of the characters who first discover the mysterious and magical corridors in the depths of the Mendip Hills.
The creepy, cheeky characters from the cave’s fascinating history will be coming out to play between October 21 and 29 thanks to the world famous Natural Theatre Company who will be bringing a gaggle of ghouls to gossip amongst the shadows.
They might make you jump; they’ll definitely make you giggle; and they will be appearing from 11am to 3pm each day to give Halloween explorers the opportunity to piece together the stories of the characters and decipher what is fact, what is fiction…and what is just plain nonsense!
This Spooktacular experience is included with a regular, Explorer Ticket (which includes Dreamhunters, Gough’s Cave, The Museum of Prehistory, Cliff-top Gorge Walk and the new Beyond The View experience) and is priced at: Adults £19.95 (online £16.95); Children (5-15) £13.95 (online £11.85); Under 5s Free.
Taking the whole experience to yet another level, The Natural Theatre Company is also staging very special “Fright Nights” – aimed at anyone looking for a more gruesome experience this Halloween.
This chilling journey through Gough’s Cave is not for the faint-hearted, and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
Completely separate to a regular visit to Cheddar Gorge & Caves, the Fright Nights are available for Saturday October 28 and Tuesday October 31.
Willing souls will receive some tasty treats before being led into the caves by members of The Natural Theatre Company cast, where the stories will have a greater level of intensity, as a dark tale of rivalry and deceit (and perhaps even some madness) is revealed.
The evening will give guests to the cave a chance to interact with the performers and to see this incredible landmark brought to life in a unique and immersive way.
Tickets for Fright Nights are £19.95; each show lasts approximately 1 hour; and there will be four performances per night – at 7pm, 7:30pm, 8pm and 8:30pm. Anyone interested in booking a space must telephone 01934 742343 for more information and to book tickets in advance.
