This weekend, Dumfries & Galloway’s first paranormal investigation team Mostly Ghostly return with more history and hauntings in Scotland’s oldest working theatre, the Theatre Royal Dumfries.

What to expect

Mostly Ghostly present their Haunted Theatre Tour at the Theatre Royal Dumfries in a special charity event supporting Food Train Dumfries & Galloway. Robert Burns, Edmund Kean and JM Barrie have all played their part in this splendid 225-year-old building. Mostly Ghostly have recently celebrated ten years in the business and have won Dumfries and Galloway Life Tourism Champion Awards a number of times so you’ll be in good hands on this ever-popular tour. Follow the team as they explore hidden corners of this historic building and hear their spooky and fascinating – but always respectful – tales of local history. It’ll send a shiver down your spine and leave you feeling thoroughly thrilled.

Want to stay the whole night?

Some say the Theatre Royal Dumfries is Scotland’s most haunted theatre – come, if you dare, and see for yourself. And if that isn’t enough to scare you silly, the stage is set for even more eerie encounters: the Haunted Theatre tour is followed by the Spooky Sleepover where you get to stay all night long. But don’t worry, magician Ryan Stokes will be bringing his own brand of interactive mental magic and there’ll be midnight snacks to calm any frayed nerves.
