Do I need to Pre-Book?

With the exception of our Hallowe'en Week performances, or for special!

We never cancel, and the benefit of open-air performance is that space is rarely an issue, so we can deal with tiny audiences and huge ones, too.

Tickets for our scheduled public tours can be purchased from the Happy Hangman fifteen minutes before each performance, at the gates of the Old Town Jail in St John Street (next to the SYHA Youth Hostel).

The Countdown Calendar at the top of each page on this website will keep you informed as to when the next public tours are scheduled - and 'News & Updates' of any fully-booked performances.

All e-mail queries will be responded to promptly, and confirmation of bookings made. If in doubt, contact The Hangman at 


UPDATE (9/8/15)

Occasionally there may be special group bookings co-inciding with scheduled public tours. In some cases - if these are exceptionally large groups, or involve overseas/educational groups where the structure and content of the show may be amended for ease of translation - the public schedule may need to be suspended and no forther tickets sold.

This is rare. If such an occasion arises, however, it will be detailed WELL IN ADVANCE on our Facebook pages, Twitter, and - as detailed above - in 'News and Updates' the Countdown Calendar at displayed at the top of the page on this website ('The next GhostWalk Starts In...').
