Exclusively for our Broadgate occupiers
One of the sold-out shows of the Christmas season is the official live launch for Ghost Walk, a site-specific, digital audio show for the streets of the City of London via your smartphone.
We have created two exclusive occupier event on Monday 13th of December at 3.30pm and 5.30pm.
A 1.2 mile (or 24-minute walk) starting in Finsbury Avenue Square, it’s a guided tour via your smartphone, iPad or tablet with GPS (per person) so you can discover the spirits hiding on the streets of the city. Just bring headphones, warm clothes, walking shoes and enjoy some hot chocolate too. The Ghost Walk app will then be available to download for free into spring 2022.
Multi-award-winners Poltergeist (Lights Over Tesco Car Park, Art Heist) return with a new genre-bending audio walk for humans big and small.

An all-star cast is led by Olivier-winner Juliet Stevenson (The Doctor, Mary Stuart). It also stars Adam Buxton (The Adam Buxton Podcast), Lydia West (It’s a Sin, Years and Years), Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education), Paterson Joseph (Peep Show, The Leftovers), Nina Wadia (The Outlaws, Goodness Gracious Me) and David Mumeni (Dead Pixels, Stath Lets Flats).
