North Walsham has a great history from fire to revolt, smugglers and murder. Come and experience our ghost walks around the town centre to find out more about the town’s spooky past. Each walk lasts about an hour.
Walks are suitable for adults and older children aged 12+.
The Children’s ‘Weird Walsham Trail’ is suitable for those aged 6+. No unaccompanied children.
All events will adhere to Government Guidelines, best practice and extra precautions. The walks all take place outdoors and all participants must stay within their ‘bubbles’ and not mix or mingle with other participants.
Private group walks can also be booked direct with us. Please use our website.
Sign up to New Stages mailing list here to be keep up-to-date.
We also have a Facebook page you could join to keep up with the news!
The ghost walks last around 45 minutes to 1 hour long and there is no seating on the way round. We’ll be dipping in and out of alleyways too. If you have access or mobility needs, please let us know in advance and we will do what we can.
The ghost walks will take place even if wet and rainy. Come appropriately dressed as refunds cannot be made for no-shows.
We run public ghost walks but can also organise private bookings for groups and functions etc. You can get in touch with Joseph using our contact page.
Walks are collated and presented by Joseph Ballard, who is also director of New Stages who present theatre, classes and events in the local area. Joseph grew up in North Walsham and has, since a young age, been collecting stories of the paranormal, the town’s history and quirkiness.
Funds raised from the ghost walks help support the community projects and groups of New Stages.
