TREADING gingerly through an ancient, crumbling mansion, two men come face to face with a dark, terrifying secret that will change their lives forever…

Charles Dickens’ tale, The Haunting, is the production Ilminster Entertainments Society is reopening the Warehouse Theatre, and its autumn season, with, in September.

With comparisons drawn to The Woman in Black, the play echoes the atmosphere of the great Victorian ghost stories, and is set to run from Wednesday to Saturday, September 10-13.

Tickets are priced at £9 adults, £8 senior citizens and £7 children and students.

Performances start at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 07943-779880 or visit Lanes Garden Shop.

The Warehouse in Ilminster will re-open for the autumn on Monday, September 1.
