Based on Bram Stoker’s classic text, and set within the historic rooms of the Tudor Sutton House, this electrifying interpretation, full of twists and turns, shines a light on some of the  forgotten identities in the original novel.
Dracula is a theatrical journey that will lead audiences into the darkest corners of the house and the deepest depths of their nightmares. This is a haunting and visceral promenade experience that will transport visitors back in time to discover a legacy of blood that stretches through the ages.
Director Katharine Armitage comments, “It is a real honour to be bringing the Count back to life at Sutton House as part of their ‘Queered Season’. This show is all about shaking the dust off a Victorian text, peering into its innards and then throwing it onstage to create something both classic and completely new. In re-examining our history and literature we can always find voices that were ignored or kept quiet in the past but they’re definitely there and now it’s their time to come out of the shadows (the problem being, with a horror story, what else will follow out of the

Cult Horror Movies Halloween Afternoon Tea at Royal Lancaster London


Frights, Camera, Action! This Halloween, Royal Lancaster London is directing something spooky, and the biggest twist in this thriller…everything is black and white!
Built in 1967, Royal Lancaster London is going back to the 1960s for Halloween to celebrate its 50th Birthday. Re-launching following a mega £80 million renovation – or re-‘vamp’ – the hotel is ‘thrilled’ to announce the hair-raising Halloween Afternoon Tea, available from 17-31 October 2017.
Indulge in a truly spook-tacular experience with the Halloween Afternoon Tea, inspired by 1960s classic horror movies. A very cold welcome awaits you, with Alfred Hitchcock classics flickering from a projector and The Little Shop of Horrors’ Audrey sitting on your table. Don’t feed her meat!
Pull the curtains back on a scene of savoury classics; though not all is as it seems… are you brave enough to try the Axe-Carved Beef with Horseradish; the Ominous Crab Sushi and the Pitch Black Pudding Scotch Egg?
Sink your fangs into an array of sickly-sweet confections so good they could bring the dead to life. Things get grisly with a Cursed Blackbird Macaroon; Psycho Marbled Lollipops; Black Sunday Battenberg; Night of the Living Tart; and a Haunted Panna Cotta.
The final nails in the coffin are the Chocolate and Coconut Scones, served fresh from the oven with Homemade Blackberry Jam and Clotted-Blood Cream. The Halloween Afternoon Tea is accompanied by a selection of fresh loose leaf teas and a glass of Lanson Black Label or the slightly sweeter Lanson White Label.

Royal Lancaster London invites you to embrace your inner Hitchcock and capture a chilling photograph of the Halloween Afternoon Tea. To enter, all photos must be in black and white and use the hashtag #WeAlwaysScare to win a complimentary Christmas Afternoon Tea.
The 1960s Halloween Afternoon Tea is priced at £35 per person and is served from 2pm until 5.30pm.
