Scary literary ghost walks

Community health day planned to educate residents

Have your say

TICKETS for spooky walks around a town at night are on sale.

The ghost walks are part of Havant Literary Festival which starts on October 3.

Last year’s spooky walks were a sell-out. They are delivered by the Spectral Players Company.

Tim Dawes is one of the organisers of the festival.

He said: ‘Three of the five walks are suitable for all the family including young children. Based in and around Havant town centre, the walk is a wonderful mix of story-telling, and theatrical surprises and performances, bringing these haunting tales to life.

‘There are also two ghost walks for those of you with a stronger constitution. These late night walks are a little scarier and you are advised to bring along a torch and maybe some garlic and a crucifix.’

Tickets are £6. Call (023) 9247 2700 or book online at
