Ghost Stories scares Londoners longer

First Published 13 September 2010, Last Updated 13 September 2010

Ghost Stories, the West End’s latest evening of frightening fun, has proved such a hit with fans of things that go bump in the night that it has extended its run in the capital.

The evening of horrific entertainment, which had been booking until 7 November, will now run at the Duke of York’s theatre until 19 February.

Written by League Of Gentlemen scribe Jeremy Dyson and actor, magician and Derren Brown collaborator Andy Nyman, Ghost Stories’s tale of three linked supernatural happenings had audiences screaming with both fear and pleasure when it ran at the Lyric Hammersmith late last year.

Speaking about its West End run, which began in June, creators Dyson and Nyman said: “Ghost Stories has now terrified nearly 95,000 people since its first sell out seasons in Liverpool and Hammersmith and we are so excited to be extending the run until February. We’ve had amazing feedback from audience members and critics and now lots more people will have the chance to enjoy the shocks, scares and laughs at the show.”

The theatrical fright-fest, which stars Nyman alongside Nicholas Burns, David Cardy and Ryan Gage, is also offering a special Halloween treat for fans of theatre that will make your skin crawl. An extra midnight show has been added on Saturday 30 October, so that the production can be performed in the deepest, darkest moments of Halloween morning.

“We are extremely excited to be doing the special Halloween midnight show which will be even creepier than usual,” the creepy show’s creators commented. “The whole of Halloween week is going to be great for us as so many people will be looking for a fun night out where they are scared senseless and Ghost Stories fits the bill perfectly. Those who are brave enough to come should book now!”

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
