Ticket Price: £15 - £7.50

A young governess agrees to look after two orphaned children in a seemingly idyllic, but remote, country house. But shortly after her arrival, she realises that the house is haunted by a troubled past. The Governess will risk everything to keep the children safe, even if it means giving herself up to the ghosts.

As you arrive in the impressive entrance Hall of Bly Manor, characters from the play will then beckon you deeper into the house where the story unfolds and the tension increases. After a sell-out run at Wymering Manor and then Stansted House, we revisit the play with a brand new dark twist!

Further Information

The performance will start at 7.30pm with doors at 7pm, with a 20 minute interval between acts. We would recommend an advisory of ages 12 and above due to the tense nature of the piece and some subject matters addressed in the dialogue. During the short interval refreshments will be available from the bar.

The location: Merchistoun Hall
Address: 106 Portsmouth Rd, Horndean, Hampshire PO8 9LJ
Parking: Parking around the Hall
Accessibility: All the ground floor is accessible
