Ghosts, Boxmoor, Old Town and Bridal shops! (Add Your Comments)

Its been a fantastic day!

We had a great rehearsal for our new Boxmoor walk which is coming in May- watch this space! We also found what is left of another lost Manor House in Chaulden. Chaulden House was situated across the road from the Rugby Club, what remains now is the old stable house and dovecote in amongst some garages – and its beautiful!


Ghost boss Kim then took herself off to the opening of a new Bridal shop in the old town. If you want to see beautiful dresses and accessories to die for you need to go there! http://www.haloandwrenbridal.com



Gadespring water cress beds and The Boxmoor Trust (Add Your Comments)

Had a great morning exploring the Gadesprings watercress beds at The Box Moor Trust. Amazing knowledgeable volunteers have given me a huge insight into the workings of the cressbeds as well as their new incarnation as a nature reserve. Thanks you so much, this has made a huge difference to our new Boxmoor walk!

From Prison to Pub- Royal Oak (Add Your Comments)

Oak House in Hemel’s old town has had many uses but ‘Pub’ is usually what people remember. One of the worst too!
The Royal Oak closed in the 70’s and was converted into houses.

After a sell out performance in October, we sold out for Halloween and our November performance! It’s been an amazing end to the year.

Halloween was fantastic and we were joined by the very talented May Contain Nuts Theatre, who provided us with a lot of scares. We are so happy to have had the chance to work with such an amazing theatre company. Here’s to many more collaborations with them!!! Please have a look at their website to see the amazing work they do www.maycontainnutstheatre.com
