Little Fort of Horrors at Landguard Fort - 26th October
Dare you enter Landguard Fort after dark? A strange artefact known as the Mask of the Dead that was unearthed at the G’harne excavation site in Africa - and then mysteriously stolen - has been found in a container at the Port during a customs check. As a security measure the artefact has temporarily been moved to Landguard Fort for safe keeping before been taken to the British Museum in London.
The mask was reputed to have legendary powers. The wearer could raise an army of the dead, and his enemies would grow weak and die just looking at it. The mask disappeared centuries ago until its recent discovery.
Due to the interest it has generated, for one night only, you are invited to attend a special Open Evening at Landguard Fort on Saturday 26th October - where the mask will be revealed and an expert archaeologist will be present to answer questions!
Entrance to the evening is by ‘timed ticket’. You can book a 10 minute arrival time slot between 7pm and 11pm. All tickets are £12 per person.
