Lot 13 - A New Ghost Story For Christmas

Lancashire's most haunted hall will once again become the backdrop for A Ghost Story for Christmas when a brand new spine-tingling seasonal play titled Lot 13 opens at Samlesbury Hall, near Preston, in December 2023.

Sharon Jones, Director of Samlesbury Hall said "Christmas and ghost stories go hand in hand, and we have established our annual ghost plays over the last two years. For our third year we are breaking the mould by offering something new that has never been seen before, and we are excited to present this dramatic new ghost story to audiences looking for a family-friendly spine-chilling experience."

The 40-minute production is designed for families and lovers of ghost stories and is now an annual event at the Hall. The audience will 'travel through time' as the ghostly Christmas tale comes vividly to life in four dimensions, and will be guided through the rooms of the hall as they watch each scene of the story unfold.

Jason Karl, from AtmosFEAR! Scare Entertainment, who are producing the play said "Lot 13 is a brand new ghost story which was inspired by the legendary 18th century tale 'The Mistletoe Bough'. It has been adapted with an additional plotline and is set simultaneously in the present day and in the roaring 1920's. The audience are invited to attend the hall's 'Christmas Auction' of antiques, but not everything is as it seems, and someone ends up paying a higher price than they bargained for… Featuring a tragic game of hide-and-seek and a shocking discovery, Lot 13 offers the perfect seasonal thrill, set against the spectacular backdrop of historic Samlesbury Hall".
