Culture24 Listings Pick: Days of Victorian Gothic, Whitby Abbey, Whitby, October 30 2010

It’s hard to imagine a more delicious Halloween proposition than an afternoon of spooky stories in a big top performed by Victorian actors on the clifftop Abbey.

Experts will tell all on the Victorian’s fascination with death, funerals and lavish send-offs, which played a vital role in Victorian society.

Costumed falconers will also be unleashing some of their creatures of the night – hawks, falcons and owls – into the overhead skies.

12pm-3pm. Admission £4-£6 (family ticket £16).
