A multi-sensory re-imagining of Suffolk’s scariest myth, BLACK SHUCK that will engage all of your senses.
It’s the 4th annual Black Shuck Festival at The Blyth Hotel, Suffolk where the preparations are almost complete. The performances are being perfected, the breakfast buffet looks amazing, the guests are all checked in and the hotel staff have it all under control. Or at least they think they do until a very unexpected thunder storm…
It is rumoured that on August 4th 1577 a demon dog burst into Blythburgh Church in a clap of thunder, killing two people and leaving a trail of devastation behind him. The scorch marks from Black Shuck’s claws can still be seen on the church door today.
BLACK SHUCK is a Young Roots project funded by Heritage Lottery fund and created in partnership with the Museum of East Anglian Life.
Please note, the show contains the following: Complete darkness, loud noises, special effects, strobe lighting
