A scare at Halloween
I meant to post this earlier today but have spent most of it afraid to go outside. It's only now as the witching hour approaches that I feel I can do justice to the wonderful atmosphere of my experience last night at the Leprechaun Museum's Halloween event. It's a strictly over 18s piece of performance theatre running nightly until 4th November. It celebrates our ancient festival of Samhain, from whence all modern Halloween comes. To give details would to be spoil many of the surprises and scares but suffice to say: do not go if you are afraid of the dark, or of ghosts, or things that might creep up on you. At times it reminded of LARPs I've played and run and at others, I felt I was part of a special Halloween edition of the Crystal Maze. It's certainly of the treat variety and gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up from me.
