Ghost Walk - Bradford on Avon

Discover another side to Bradford on Avon - murder, mystery and ghosts and be ready to be entertained. Not suitable for children under 10 years old and for those with a nervous disposition.

Beneath the picturesque streets of Bradford on Avon lies a secret history of murder, mayhem and mass insurrection. This stunning medieval town has a dark past that stretches back to its foundation in Roman Britain. An alarming number of its residents, many of whom were hardened skeptics, have first hand experience of psychic phenomena. On every street of this historic town you can find tales of gruesome apparitions, ghostly warnings from the past and demands for justice from beyond the grave.

 Join award winning author Jasper Bark for a tour ofthe dark alleys and devilish past of our unique town centre. Once you know it’shorrific history, you will never be able to look at Bradford on Avon in the same way again.

This event is part of the Bradford on Avon Arts Festival. The walk starts at the Swan Hotel, BOA at 7.15pm. (venue is a few minutes walk from BOA train station with a good train service to Bath, Bristol etc).

Please purchase your own tickets.

    A good evening and thanks to those who turned up. To those who did not bother to turn up or even to bother to let me know, in future, if you book yourself on to any event and cannot attend can you at least take the time to change your rsvp or let the host know, not only is it not good manners it is not fair on the host who will be looking out for you. It has been noted. Thanks, Becky.

    This website works well thanks to those who take a lot of time and trouble to organise events.

    At the top of every event and on notifications to your email account is the facility to automatically diarise through "EXPORT" - I use Google Calendar with its flexible, multiple Reminders system - it only takes two clicks. If anyone needs help please ask, I am only a message away.

    Hi All, looking forward to seeing you later. I will email you my contact number. I think it will be quite a chilly evening, in more ways than one........ If anyone can`t make it please let Rob know as he is looking for a ticket. See you in the pub between 6.45pm-7pm. The walk leaves bang on 7.15pm so please do not be late. See you later. Becky

    No tickets available, so have changed RSVP...BUT if anyone drops out and wants to give me their ticket I will pay them the £10 when I see them or at THE PARTY - http://www.meetup.com/The-Bath-...­ - “I turned to her and she reached for my hand. It would have been easier to walk away. But the wind still blew around us and the house still stood.”

  • Becky

    • Gillian C.

      Talk nicely to landlord sure he will squeeze u on list.

      September 19

  • Becky

    Hi All, I hope you all have managed to get tickets, as I gather the pub has more or less sold out (although please double check prior to the event). The walk starts at approximately 7.15pm so please arrive in good time before. I would suggest meeting from 6.30pm onwards for pre-walking drinks :-) in the Swan pub. I will post up my contact details shortly. I have read a review in the local paper on the same walk we are doing that was undertaken the other week that it was very spooky............................­.... :-)

  • Becky

    Hi All, Just a reminder that this is a "ticket only" event, you need to purchase your ticket in advance via the website or the pub, if you telephone them on the number that Nick has posted you maybe able to reserve a ticket on the door and pay on the night. Please do not just turn up without sorting a ticket out as you may be turned away by the tour guide/group. Thanks, Becky

    1 · September 16

  • Nick M.

    I got the impression they could take a good number. However best give the Swan a call and reserve a ticket and say you will pay on the night. Their number is 01225 868686. Nick

  • claire

    moving that day, but would like to come. Are you cutting off the rsvps at all?

    September 14

    • Becky

      No, the pub seemed relaxed about numbers as long as people have brought their tickets in advance. Becky

  • Lindsay

    Does anyone know if you can buy your ticket on the night?

    August 31

    • Becky

      Hi Lindsay, I am not sure to be honest, you may need to contact the pub and ask. Nick - when you got tickets at the pub did they mention anything about purchase of tickets on the night? Becky

      August 31

  • Eileen

    Sorry, but I need to cancel. I made a mistake and bought my ticket for the 14th so will go to that ghost walk instead. Look forward to meeting you all at some time in the future.

  • Nick M.

    Hi Becky picked up 'the tickets' from the Swan. All seems very casual. They are £10 each just to confirm for everyone. There didn't seem to be a restriction on numbers but I was warned it will be very scary!!! Mind boggles! Nick

  • Becky

    Hi All, I have updated the details of where to get the tickets that the Swan Pub have just updated me with, you can get them via the pub or the other link. There seems to be a discrepancy over the price of tickets if they are £8 or £10!!! I haven't booked my ticket yet but if anyone does it soon, can you let me know the correct price and I can update it on here. I am really looking forward to it. :-)
