The Plague Doctor & The Grim Reaper, Newcastle Castle

The Plague Doctor & The Grim Reaper, Newcastle Castle

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2021 AT 10:30 AM – 4 PM

Our Plague Doctor will be roaming the halls of Newcastle Castle dispensing his own unique brand of beaky “wisdom” about how you can stay safe from the ravages of the plague. You’ll be disgusted, amused and perhaps terrified by the lengths people went to in order to cure the dreaded Black Death. Don’t forget, he looks scary, but he’s usually friendly enough…

The Grim Reaper will be wandering the halls of his favourite Castle this Hallowe’en. There’ll be a small prize for anyone brave (or foolish) enough to talk to him!

Also, join our storyteller in the King’s Chamber for some hair-raising Hallowe’en tales. Ancient stories of ghosts, witches, werewolves, vampires and monsters will have you looking over your shoulder on Hallowe’en. Performances will last around twenty minutes and are suitable for children 6+.
10:30am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm
