Scary storytelling around the campfire

Enjoy Mystery On Darkening Moor with Strange-Twig Theatre Company.

Strange-Twig Theatre Company returns to Waddesdon with their new pop-up theatre performance around the campfire. With deep overtones of Scooby Doo, this new story is based in the fictional world conjured in Mary Shelley’s novel ‘Frankenstein’.

As you set up your tents, make sure to say hello to some mysterious characters, especially the investigator who has come to Darkening Manor across Darkening Moor and through Darkening Graveyard. Learn about the reports of gravediggers, question the suspicious movements of the femme fatale and help solve the mystery that surrounds the spooky Darkening Manor.

Be prepared for the unexpected.
