Canterbury Festival – Squashbox Theatre presents Shivers and Shadows

  • Date: Tuesday 27th October
  • Times: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Canterbury Festival is coming to Westgate Hall! Get ready to shiver, shake, shudder and scream as Squashbox Theatre presents its first ever show for Halloween!

Craig, your friendly host, has just inherited a creepy mansion from his Great Uncle Vladimir. Join him as he explores the mansion’s secrets and meets some of its strange and spooky inhabitants. What ghouls and spectres haunt the gloomy corridors of this old house?

Expect an overflowing cauldron of a show, brimming with delightful frights and hilarious horrors, bubbling with ingenious puppetry and comedy, seasoned with scary stories and tall tales, flavoured with live music and songs, and topped with a sprinkling of slapstick and silliness.

WARNING: like all Squashbox performances, this show will be full of laughter, excitement and fun… but it will be SCARY too! Expect loud noises, creepy characters and a spooky atmosphere – plus a few surprises that might make you jump!

Recommended for brave children aged 6+ (accompanied by their scaredy-cat grown-ups)

‘An absolute celebration of all that is good about theatre for children.’ (What’s on Stage)
