Why not come along and enjoy a terrifyingly good time at Downhill Demesne, Castlerock on 29 and 30 October.

Together with the talented students and teachers from Ballymoney NRC the National Trust have been scheming an all new event and performance that will frighten the socks off the bravest.

Set within the chilling themed grounds of the old Doomhill house ruins, a grisly story awaits. For the brave amongst you, the ghoulish live action performance with unnerving tales of the strange and peculiar inhabitants of the historic house is sure to scare.

You have been accused, convicted and sentenced to a life within the ruins for a crime you say you didn’t commit. Will you spend all eternity in the dungeons or make it out alive? The occupants will have great pleasure in subjecting you to the horror of your ways. You will meet the evil court jester that relishes in the fact that you will die, the Graveyard of the dead or so they say, the Kitchen from Hell and cannibals that have been banished from the village. Be prepared for the unexpected as you navigate your way through a 40 minute cursed and disease ridden MediEVIL village. Are you brave enough to suffer 40mins of hell within the ruins at DOOMHILL.

Tours will run on each day from 5pm – 9pm: these shows are aimed at adults and older children (12+); those attending with young children are able to at your own discretion.

Normal admission prices to Downhill Demesne apply and NT members are free.

Come along if you dare…
