Students Scare Salopians at Spooky Walks
Students from Shrewsbury College spent this Halloween frightening the people of Shropshire at Attingham Park’s Spooky Walks.
Performing Arts and Music students combined forces at this year’s popular self-guided walks, and for the first time students took up residence in the 18th century mansion - offering a fantastic backdrop for more horror delights.
‘‘I think the Spooky Walks performances are great! I love seeing the audience being genuinely freaked out,’’ said Keri Hopward Performing Arts Level 3 Year 2 Student.
The evening offered an endless array of ghostly goings on for all the family including; performances of Sweeny Todd in the kitchen, dramas in the dining room, flash mob dances in the courtyard as well a surprise feast of horrors throughout the walks.
Fiona Holman, Events and Marketing Officer at Attingham Park said, ‘’we are over the moon with how fantastic the event went, and it is great to have such a wonderful partnership with Shrewsbury College.’’
Fiona went on to say, ‘’Hundreds of visitors were entertained by a very talented group of students.’’
Many took to Social Media to express their delight with the event and how fantastic the students of the College performed.
The students work on the Spooky Walks project from the start of September, and spend time researching and rehearsing their roles and performances. Andy Pierce, Lecturer of Performing Arts at Shrewsbury College said, ‘It was a great collaboration between the Performing Arts and Music Tech Students this year - they did Shrewsbury College proud.’’
