Found in a busy back street of modern Manchester stands an old haunted tavern

Dating back to 1656, and transported to Manchester almost 100 years ago



This performance is completely different from anything ever tried in Manchester before.

Join Flecky for his most intimate performance yet & get up close & personal 

15 adults sat around a coffin lid, inside a private and haunted area of The Shakespeare inn.


The Tavern Of The Dead is based on a performance performed in Paris from 1890 until 1950. Using the original script, but updating it with Flecky Bennett’s unique style.


There will be music,singing, candles, drinks laced with poison, and a ouija board and seance session.

(For those that don’t want to take part in the Ouija & Pendulum session, you can return to the bar below the haunted room)

There are two strong spirits who will always be connected to this tavern….will we contact them again…


Part history, part theatre and a real paranormal investigation using a Ouija board and other experiments
