Event Description

Turning fairy tales into scary tales…

Are you brave enough to face the castle after dark? Join us for a terrifying treat this Halloween, which sees a dark and evil twist on some well-known fairy tales. Wonder the ruins after dark, meet our spine-tingling storytellers and discover a cast of creepy characters harking back to the original more sinister Grimms’ tales – with not a happy ending in sight.

Against the backdrop of the spooky night-time setting of this ancient castle, you will be transported to a scary world when gruesome goings-on were commonplace, whilst encountering characters who lived happily never after. Whether you’re looking for a ghostly Snow White, a tormented Hansel and Gretel or a hair-raising Red Riding Hood, our creepy fairy tales are less once upon a time and more once upon a nightmare.

Kenilworth Castle has been named as one of English Heritage’s most haunted sites, have you got what it takes to experience our Fright Night?

Please note: it is recommended that children aged 5-10 years attend between 6pm – 7.30pm. After 7.30pm we recommend that people with a nervous disposition and children under 10 years of age do not attend.
