We went to a Dracula theatre production there on Halloween and while the play was pretty dire it was great to be there in the dark with the fire roaring. At the interval they took us on a tour of the Hall and it was one of the Scariest,but in a fun way experiences I've had. The tour guide told us scary stories about the Holt family and led us from room to room. They had a guy dressed as a monk that would walk in the background, The first time we all thought was stupid, but as the stories influenced you and the rooms became darker with the wind whistling through the old style windows, our group started getting that slight group fear you experience when everyone jumps at the same points in horror films. This monk then appearing in darkened rooms really made you jump. Aston Hall should do more of this type of thing I would definitely pay to come in the evening again and hear more of the gruesome past you don't get on a normal visit. I was disappointed to have to go back to the boring and over acted play.
