Jon Hogan, public engagement manager, said: “The castle after dark can be an eerie place to be, and for two nights only, we invite visitors to experience it.

“Meet creepy characters including the spiritualist, the undertaker, the judge and the resurrectionist, who will tell macabre tales of the past.

“There’s going to be a full Victorian funeral procession through the castle grounds each night. Come along for a truly spine-tingling Halloween spectacle.”
