The Ominous Folk of Hopeless, Maine

Tuesday, October 25, 2022

This year we have a Gothic Halloween performance for adults and older children. The Ominous Folk of Hopeless, Maine are bringing their original blend of tales and music to the Mansion. Their successful graphic novels have expanded into a live multi media act with tentacles.

Hopeless, Maine is an imaginary island cut off from the rest of the world and lost in time. It is a haunted place, where the children are all orphans (hmm - why?), vampires and demons abound and magic is real. The ocean around is a seething mass of deadly and hostile creatures with creepy feelers.

There will be two 45min acts of music mixed with lore from Hopeless (why is it called Hopeless?) and some true vampire history.

We anticipate that the Ominous Folk's Gothic theme should blend seamlessly into the Mansion that time forgot.

Please note that if you've already enjoyed The Ominous Folk at other local venues, this production is tailored for Woodchester Mansion so will be new to you.

The two acts are separated by an interval of 30mins with refreshments and an opportunity to acquire the Hopeless books and things, as well as Mansion goodies.

Performance ends 9:30 -10pm.

Park in NT car park. Our minibus will be available from 6:50pm for transport down to the Mansion and return at end. Or walk.

Time: 1930

Cost: £16

Where: Woodchester Mansion Woodchester Park Nympsfield GL10 3TS
Postcode: GL10 3TS
