It’s all frights on the night for kids’ charity fundraiser

Have your say

The children’s charity NSPCC Scotland is inviting people in Edinburgh to a spooky theatrical evening at the Lyceum Theatre.

The charity has teamed up with the Lyceum to put on a fundraising fright night that will feature scary tales, strange occurrences and thrilling seances.

The hair-raising event takes place on February 3, and will raise vital funds for NSPCC Scotland’s services for vulnerable children and families. Brave guests will enjoy The Infamous Brothers Davenport, a play that tells the story – inspired by true events – of Willy and Ira Davenport’s seances and dramatic demonstrations.

Afterwards, there will be a Victorian seance led by Sara Wearden of Wearde Paranormal.

Susie Barron, NSPCC Scotland community fundraising manager said: “The setting in the Lyceum Theatre, which is itself rumoured to be haunted, will top off this spooky event.”
