Venue: Chawton House

Are you courageous enough to visit Chawton House after dark?

Once the sun has set, brave a guided tour to experience the grisly ingredients of women’s Gothic and learn about the disturbing contexts that gave rise to the genre.

Explore secret passages and unlock forbidden chests to discover ancient manuscripts and the remnants of brutal crimes. Be on the lookout for ghostly apparitions and veiled mysteries as we shine our lanterns on the omens and premonitions that terrified early readers of Gothic. 

£15 per person, includes a drink served in the Great Hall.  Please arrive at 6pm for the tour to commence at 6:30pm.
