Holiday Activities



This Hallowe’en, beware of The Birds, try not to get Vertigo and keep an eye out for Strangers on a Train, as the Ragged Ghoul Museum presents…



Hitchcock for Kids!



This October Half Term come and have a go at our family arts activities inspired by the movies of local boy and “Master of Suspense” Alfred Hitchcock! We will also have our usual Hallowe’en shenanigans going on around the Museum to delight and entertain.


Born and raised in East London, Alfred Hitchcock is known globally as one of the greatest directors of thriller movies ever, with films such as Rear Window, North by Northwest, Psycho and The Birds to name but a few. Being born in 1899 also technically makes him a Victorian! What more fitting subject could there be to inspire our Hallowe’en Holidays?!


Art activities will be on offer throughout the Museum. The Victorian classroom and East End Kitchen will be also open to explore. The Under 5s Ragamuffin Room will also be open as will the Towpath Café for those parched grown-ups!




From 10am – 5pm.

Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th October

Free Admission.
