Liverpool Unearthed: The Bridewell

A new horror-theatre experience, set in an old Victorian police station.

We all know that ghost stories aren’t real, right?

Well… what if they were?

Bespectacled Theatre Company invite you to their latest production – Liverpool Unearthed: The Bridewell – a once-in-a-lifetime ghostly experience which will haunt you for all the right reasons! This October, the emerging theatre company, in collaboration with Hope Street Limited and the Bridewell Studios, aren’t just telling ghost stories. They are inviting you to try and live through one.

The Prescott Street Bridewell, opposite the Royal Hospital, has long been celebrated as a home for the artists who create and exhibit their work in the building. Bespectacled Theatre Company will instead show you a parallel world where the artists have been driven out by greedy developers, in a generation where student flats seem to be taking over.

You are invited to the building’s open house by LEAP Developments on the evening of its intended sale, to walk its forgotten corridors and spooky corners. As night falls and you wander deeper into The Bridewell, the night begins to take a terrifying turn. It becomes apparent that the Bridewell is coming back to life, or more appropriately, back from the dead…
