St. GEORGE'S HALL welcomes a 'Spooky Skool Of Horrors' for children this Halloween

ST. George's Hall are teaming up with Liverpool Shoktober to invite children to attend the scary Skool of Horrors this Halloween.

These new tours, set deep within the spooky surroundings of the St George's Hall Catacombs, invite children to take part in a quest which will see them navigate their way around the tombs to solve a mystery; unlocking the eerie secret of the St George's tombs.

Children must be brave and prepared for lots of surprises along the way. The interactive tours will see the children visit 6 areas where they will meet a variety of characters such as the crypt keeper Mister Grimm and the Wicked Witch of the West. All of these colourful characters will explain their link to the history of St George's Hall and give riddles for the children to answer. Using all of the clues gathered they must crack the mystery, then and only then will their mission be accomplished and they will be released from the tombs.

Skool of Horrors tours will take place from Thursday, 23 October to Saturday, 25 October and then again from Wednesday, 29 October to Friday, 31 October. The sessions are suitable for aged 8 to 12 children and will last for 90 minutes. Tours will be ran at 10.30am, 12pm, 1.30pm and 3pm. Places will be limited to 30 per tour.

James Griffiths, from Liverpool Shocktober, commented:- "For children, the focus is very much on fantasy and fairytales, but with a spooky and ghoulish twist. Youngsters will enjoy it as it will heighten their imaginations as they try to solve the mystery."
