Meet Mary. She's a ghost. It's all been a bit dead around here recently, so she's invited humans along to liven things up. Your task: rally the ghostly community of the City of London, and bring them together for the wildest party of the afterlife.
Multi-award-winning company Poltergeist (Lights Over Tesco Car Park, Art Heist) return to London with a new genre-bending audio walk for humans big and small. Download the app, plug in your headphones, and use your new spirit detector to find a host of hilarious ghosts hiding in City of London.
Ghost Walk’s all-star cast is led by Olivier-winner Juliet Stevenson (The Doctor, Mary Stuart). It also stars Adam Buxton (The Adam Buxton Podcast, The Adam and Joe Show), Lydia West (It’s a Sin, Years and Years), Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education, Emma), Nina Wadia (The Outlaws, Goodness Gracious Me), Paterson Joseph (Peep Show, The Leftovers), and David Mumeni (Dead Pixels, Stath Lets Flats).
Ghost Walk is powered by Echoes, and produced with New Diorama Theatre. It is supported by British Land, Arts Council England, with thanks to the Pound Corsham.
Poltergeist Theatre approached us to create a unique digital experience which created a spooky, but fun audio walk in central London. We created a digital app for their event which has been relied on by many people visiting Broadgate, waiting for a haunting experience.
