Ghost Light

The sell-out event of the past two festivals returns to the stage, the foyers, and all around the Princess Theatre in this beguiling mix of history, architecture and performance.

There is a superstition that if an empty theatre is ever left completely dark, a ghost will take up residence. To prevent this, a single ghostlight is left burning centre stage.

During the pandemic, the lights of Broadway and the West End were gone and ghostlight’s around the world shone through the darkness as a beacon of hope that performance, music and connection would return, in time. Throughout that period the only inhabitants of the theatres were the ghosts that once graced the stage, allowed again free reign to indulge in performance.

This is a theatre tour with a difference. Join us for unprecedented access to the stunning Princess Theatre and the stories within it, as it comes to life through history and song, culminating in a special intimate performance on stage, lit only by the ghostlight.
