Halloween Hocus-Pocus at the Shell Grotto

31 October 2009, Doors open at 7pm


Step back in time – if you dare!


After the success of our Halloween Tales event last year, the Friends are planning another night of magical entertainment for All Hallows’ Eve!


A Tapestry of Tantalising Trickery....Oooh!    


The Great Misto, member of the famous Magic Circle, presents a mystical show in the magical depths of the Shell Grotto. Step back in time for a Victorian parlour magic show, complete with top hat and tails, and a host of bizarre and baffling effects.  With illusions that hark back to the famous magicians of the early 1900's, The Great Misto evokes a golden era in live magic.  Be prepared to be hoodwinked!



We will also be hosting close-up table magic, a pay bar, free snacks, friendly company and atmospheric music.


PLUS a very special appearance by famed fortune teller Madame Anastasia, offering free Tarot readings and much more.

The Great Misto’s performances in the Grotto will last for approximately 20 minutes and will be repeated through the evening; because of the nature of the venue, numbers are strictly limited.


As shows will be running throughout the evening, feel free to pop in for an hour, or spend the entire evening with us. Be sure to arrive before 8.30 so you don’t miss the magic!


All proceeds from Halloween Hocus-Pocus will go to the Friends of the Shell Grotto. Tickets are free to Friends of the Shell Grotto, £5.00 for non-members. Pre-booking is strongly advised on 01843 220008. Or if you would like to buy tickets click on the Add to Cart Button below.


To save on postage costs, we will hold your name at the door. Paypal will issue a printable receipt and we will acknowledge your booking by email.
