EXPLORE HAMILTON’S HAUNTED ARMOURIES!

On Saturday, September 29th, Ghost Walks will be hosting a series of haunted tours of the Hamilton Armouries on James Street North. With stories passed down from generations of soldiers guests can step inside Drill Halls featuring the historic North structure for stories of discipline and proof animals can be ghosts.  And the iconic South Hall with its resident ghosts scaring the toughest of men, shadows playing tricks, and the disembodied scream considered to be normal.

Featuring an investigative experience in the abandoned Junior Mess!

Price is $17.25+tax per person.

Tour times: 7:30PM / 8:00PM / 8:30PM / 9:00PM / 9:30PM

CATCH A SHOW @ THEATRE AQUARIUS

ON STAGE: SPIDER’S WEB

Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure but when a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama much harder to cope with. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Hilarity ensues when they are interrupted by the arrival of wry detective, Inspector Lord.

Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. There is tension and laughter in equal parts in an intricate plot of murder, police, drug addicts, invisible ink, hidden doorways and secret drawers.

“Suspense, anyone? The old fashioned kind? Who’s for good, clean fun?”
