Staff at the 400-year-old Oak House Museum in West Bromwich are planning a ‘spooktabulous’ Friday 13th evening for visitors with giggles, scares and creepy tales.
The ‘after dark’ event on Friday 13 March comes as staff continue preparations for the Oak Road museum to open fully to the public for a new season in April.
“Prepare for a few giggles, scares and a creepy
evening as you explore the house and meet characters who lived at Oak
House 400 years ago, experience terrible tales and learn about ghostly
goings on in the dim candlelight,” said Jane Hanney-Martin, museum
“Visitors can explore our dark corners and staff will be on hand to tell some of the ghostly tales attached to the house,” added Rebecca Butler, visitor services officer.
The evening is suitable for ages 14+ and starts at 6.30pm. Visitors can drop in any time throughout the event. Gates close at 8pm and the event finishes at 8.30pm.

Councillor Wasim Ali, cabinet with member with responsibility for museums, said: “Friday 13th promises to be a fantastic, fun event to show people the stories behind Oak House and get everyone in the mood for our museums opening to the public for a new season in just a few weeks’ time.”
