Deepdale Haunted – The Wild Ride
written by Stephen Keyworth
A new and exciting outdoor spooky theatrical event happening on the North Norfolk coast!
A promenade performance using storytelling, music and movement to tell stories of myths and ghosts of Norfolk.
Produced by Norfolk independent theatre company Slow Theatre Company in partnership with Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale, and taking place on The Orchard.
Think more Horrible Histories early on, and Tales of the Unexpected the later the show.
Audience will enter the event in small groups of up to 20 where they will be met by a guide. This guide will escort the audience along a trail, from one performance space to another. At each performance space they will meet a different character from the past and present.
Each character has a tale to tell, each tale is based on ghosts and legends based in Norfolk, each tale is about 15 minutes long.
The whole journey takes between an hour and an hour and a half, from arrival. Audiences are asked to arrive 15 minutes in advance (no earlier please).
The audience will leave safely through the pumpkin patch where they can purchase a pumpkin for tea!
The audience will be outside at all times, there is overhead coverage at the performance areas, actors and guides will remain over a meter away to ensure we have a covid safe experience.
Small groups of audience will enter the experience up to 15 times a day. Once in they will be guided around a mixture of theatre spaces letting the spooky and imaginative story unfold.
Daily shows with multiple entry times between October 22nd – 31st 2021
