Love history’s unique sell-out theatrical tours are back with new characters and stories from the depths of St George’s Hall.
In just two weeks’ time Liverpool’s St George’s Hall are set to bring you another haunting week of the popular Catacombs tours. Exploring the darker heart of Liverpool’s most celebrated and historic building, the tours return by popular demand from Mon 26th May – Sun 1st June which sent chills down the spine of thousands of people who came along to the initial run of the sell-out tours in February.
Now theatrical company Lovehistory are set to return with a whole host of actors portraying new characters, within new areas and with new stories from Liverpool’s murderous past. Experience The Catacombs of Liverpool’s Darkest History and peel back the layers of yesteryear to reveal what lies within the heart of St George’s Hall’s dark past.
Alan Smith, St George’s Hall Manager said, “The popularity of these tours has been incredible with over 2,500 people attending and it is wonderful to see these previously unused areas animated in such a way for public use. It shows Liverpool’s love of its history and its fascination in exploring its many beautiful buildings.”
The promenade performances explore the court room and dark cells below the grandness of the Great Hall, where those waiting to be condemned would spend their final moments and in the shadows of Liverpool’s past, spectators will encounter the characters that will tell their tormented tales and illuminate their history.
The Catacombs were previously used as billeting quarters for police and the army during transport strikes, or as a food dispensary and water store during the Second World War, the catacombs and basement galleries will now take on a new and dramatic lease of life.
Join Liverpool’s own premier theatrical performance company Lovehistory for a unique and exclusive experience. Lovehistory have perfected the art of promenade theatre and the dramatic murder mystery experience with dinners within the Great Hall throughout the year and will now create some further spellbinding theatrical tours which are a must see for all ages.
Judy McLean, Creative Director of Lovehistory said, “I was absolutely delighted to witness so many people enjoying the tours and it gave me the inspiration to write some further stories, for all those who came along, come back for another instalment and for all those who didn’t make it, this will be another opportunity to see undiscovered parts of the hall and some great theatrical performances. We’ve decided to go a little darker so expect some disturbing characters“.
The exclusive tours explore the underground catacombs of the hall, which have never been revealed to the public, before now! The tours are filling up fast so don’t miss your chance to see Liverpool’s history exposed like never before.
