Enjoy spine-tingling ghost stories on Halloween tour
Treat yourself to a spine-tingling city ghost tour this Halloween. That is the offer to people living in the Lichfield area of Staffordshire throughout October in the build-up to the spooky day. Lovers of the macabre have a choice of two spooky tours in the lead up to Halloween. Lichfield District Council's visitor economy team, Visit Lichfield, is welcoming back Gruesome and Ghostly tours for 2021. The series of ghost walks around Lichfield's historical city centre take in the history of the Market Square burnings at the stake, as well as the ghosts sighted at Dam Street, Cathedral Close and other city locations. The 90-minute Gruesome and Ghostly tours are running on 8, 23, 29, 30 October at 7pm and at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm on 31 October. They cost 6 each.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council's Cabinet Member responsible for Tourism, said: "It's great to see the return of our Gruesome and Ghostly tours. They are a fun way to learn more about the history of the city and will give you a whole host of stories to entertain your friends and family with when you pass by one of our local ghost haunts." In addition to the ghost walks, Visit Lichfield has also organised Trick or Treat tours which are on offer to families during the forthcoming October half-term school break. They feature ghost stories and knocking on a small number of prearranged doors to receive a trick or treat. The tours are aimed at children aged 12 and under who are accompanied by an adult. Coun Eadie added: "These tours offer a really fun way to get into the spirit of Halloween with your children. They bring together the perfect mix of treats, tricks and ghost stories, and dressing up is definitely encouraged."
