She’s been entombed for centuries – but now she’s broken free and is ready to wreak havoc!
Who is she? The Grey Lady, legendary ghost of the York Theatre Royal.
And she stars in a spooky spectacular Halloween show at York Dungeon for one month only.
The Grey Lady is one of York’s most infamous historical tales. Visitors to the Dungeon will find themselves in Theatre Royal, built on the site of the medieval St Leonard’s Hospital.
There they will learn how one nun’s forbidden love led to years of windowless imprisonment – and an enraged soul which still remains amongst the theatre’s walls…
With special effects, blackouts and jump scares which prompt screams from the hardiest of terror fans, it is a frighteningly entertaining addition to the Clifford Street attraction.
The Grey Lady runs from 7 October until 5 November, in addition to regular Dungeon favourites including the plague doctor and Dick Turpin’s highway robbery.
York Dungeon general manager Mark Mattinson said: “We’re offering willing victims the chance to step into one of our most terrifying shows yet, The Grey Lady.
“Our Halloween show is not for the faint-hearted. Victims – I mean guests – will need to be ready for terrifying tales, wicked spirits and vicious hauntings.
“Step into the Home of Halloween at The York Dungeon and encounter the Grey Lady with your own eyes, it’ll be a scream!”
