Ghost Stories In London. The West End’s Scariest Show Will Last Until March 2015

Ghost Stories In London. The West End’s Scariest Show Will Last Until March 2015.

GHOST STORIES, the West End’s scariest show announces today (Monday 2 February) that it will close its doors for the last time on 15 March 2015 after nearly 1000 performances, five years since its premiere, playingto over 400,000 people worldwide.

The truly terrifying theatrical experience first ambushed unsuspecting theatregoers in February 2010, when the co-production between the Everyman Theatre and the Lyric Hammersmith premiered in Liverpool.

Written and directed by Jeremy Dyson (THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN) and Andy Nyman (SEVERENCE,DEADSET), along with the Lyric’s Artistic Director Sean Holmes, the show went on to become theLyric Hammersmith’s biggest success to date breaking all box office records with an extended run to meet public demand.

The production, which had already begun to develop a cult following among horror fans and theatregoers alike, then transferred to the Duke of York’s theatre in 2011. Running for over a year to full houses and spine-chilling screams every night, the play toured to Toronto and Moscow, putting hearts into mouths wherever it went.

In 2014, Ghost Stories reopened at the West End’s Arts Theatre hosted the stage phenomenon, breaking all box office records in its history, including playing to a record number of people in one night on the spookiest night of the year, Halloween.

Co-creator of the show Andy Nyman said:

‘When Jeremy and I first conceived Ghost Stories, we never expected that the show would go on to be a cult hit, playing all over the world, with people returning time and again to be scared out of their minds. We’re hugely proud of its success.’

GHOST STORIES mixes the very best of theatre with the intense buzz of a thrill-ride, delivering something truly unique. With some new moments of shock, the show is a stage fright like no other – 80 rollercoaster minutes of thrilling, chilling laughs and the scariest fun you’ll ever have in the theatre.

Jeremy Dyson has won numerous awards as the co-­-writer of the hilariously bleak THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN; including a Perrier Award, BAFTA Award for Best Comedy and the Golden Rose of Montreux. The stage show he co-­-penned,A LOCAL SHOW FOR LOCAL PEOPLE, was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2002.

Andy Nyman is an acclaimed actor, with credits including Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated DEAD SET, the horror-­-comedy directed by Christopher Smith SEVERENCE and KICK ASS 2. He is the award-­-winning co-­-writer and co-­-creator of the TV productions DERREN BROWN – MIND CONTROL and TRICK OF THE MIND. He co-­-wrote and co-­-directed DERREN BROWN LIVE, AN EVENING OF WONDERS, ENIGMA and Derren’s most recent live show – INFAMOUS. Andy also won the Best Entertainment Olivier Award in 2005 for SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES.

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September.
