The school play was titled The Haunted House

The immersive, site-specific performance around the St Julian’s Lane building brought visitors into contact with a parade of spooky characters – from the Grey Lady to the ghastly Drowned Child, the horrifying Starved Children to the ghoulish Maid. The school play consisted of five short plays which drew on ghost stories from local history - view our photo gallery here.
