The Examination of the Huntingdon Witches
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Admission: ££14 adults, £11 students, £8 Children
Location: Huntington Town Hall
In May 1646 nine people from Huntingdonshire were accused of witchcraft, by agents of the infamous and self-styled ‘Witchfinder General’ Matthew Hopkins. Although the trial records were destroyed by fire, an account of the depositions given by the accused and witnesses does survive, which has been used to create a dramatic reconstruction of these events.
For the 375th anniversary of trial, members of the Sealed Knot will bring to life these events in an evocative performance in the atmospheric surroundings of the old court room in Huntingdon Town Hall, with narration to explain the background to these tragic events.
Performances are at 1pm (SOLD OUT), 3.30pm and 7pm on Saturday 6 November, 12noon and 3pm on Sunday 7 November.
Places are limited and early booking is advised.
Please be aware that due to the nature of the subject matter we do not recommend this performance for younger children (references to brutality, torture and mild bad language).
Ticket holders are asked to hand sanitise on arrival, if possible to wear face coverings during the perfomance, and if possible be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your performance to ensure we can seat you.Book Now Back to events
