About the event

Join Haunted UK as we investigate one of Warwickshires most haunted buildings.

Tudor world formally known as the falstaff experience is a museum housed in a building that dates back to the 16th century, it once belonged to a man called William Shrieve, who was an archer to King Henry VIII. His name still  survives today and in a house of such high rank, it could be reasonably  assumed he was an important figure in his day and may possibly have been  a Sheriff.

In the 16th century it was a tavern and the tavern keeper, William  Rogers, is said to have been the inspiration for Shakespeare’s famous  comic character Falstaff. There is documented evidence that his family  had strong connections with Shakespeare, as Shakespeare’s daughter  Suzannah was close friends with Elizabeth, the daughter of the Rogers.

In the 17th century, wounded soldiers were brought back to the  building after the first battle of the English Civil War at Edgehill.  Following the war, John Woolmer, tenant of the building was made Mayor  of Stratford.

Having survived two great fires, the plague and Civil War, the house  has a lot of secrets to share including hidden priestholes, secret  chambers and not forgetting the hauntings.

With such a rich history it is no surprise that the building today has been the site of many reported hauntings over the years, some of the most prominent hauntings inculde: 

Full bodied apparitions including a hooded figure with glowing red eyes, parliamentary soldiers, children and animals. 

Disembodied voices 

ghostly footsteps

poltergeist activity 

and we're sure much more. 

Your night will include multiple vigils in all parts of the building, use of paranormal equipment and a variety of different experiments. 

We will also try to provide and element of free reign investigating for the braver individuals. 

We may also at some points film parts of the investigation to document the activity, if you are shy or do not wish to be filmed please discuss this with us prior to the event. 

Snack and refreshments will be provided along with hot and cold drinks but please feel free to bring your own if you wish. 

Please be aware that this location is not suitable for those with limited mobility due to stairs and ladders being the only way to access most of the locations. 

We hope to see you there.
