Ghost Stories for Christmas at Michelham Priory House & Gardens.

Embrace the rich heritage of Christmas ghost stories with a visit to the storied Michelham Priory. For countless generations, this legendary site has been synonymous with haunting tales that captivate the imagination.

It is 1896 and James Gwynne has just moved into his new home, the magnificent Michelham Priory near Hailsham. But as he begins his restoration he uncovers secrets that had been hidden for generations. As these come to light something else is disturbed – spirits that intended being left in peace!

As you make your way around the Priory by torchlight, these secrets emerge from the shadows, and the story of the Priory is revealed. From tales of monks, murder, and treason; mysteries revealed from those that lived and died at this unique location.

Step into the enchanting candlelit Barn, where the past comes alive through immersive theatrical performances of these age-old stories.
