The Witchfinder , 27th October 2017, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (20.8 miles)
"WITCHFINDER" Tenth anniversary showing of the first historically accurate drama of the Essex witch hunt of 1645.

In 2006-7, the Headgate Theatre in partnership with John Worland Video, embarked on a monumental project to produce a video with over 150 local actors. Filmed where much of the horror took place, the video shows the awful truth of the persecution of innocent people by the infamous Matthew Hopkins - the self styled "Witchfinder General".
Made with the help of a lottery grant, the film shows what really happened and reveals several surprising facts about who really started the witch hunt. (It wasn't Matthew Hopkins!)
We don't recommend that you watch it on your own - bring a friend. Rated for 12s and over - so sorry - no admittance for children under that age.
A brilliant curtain raiser to Halloween.
Tickets �£ 8, �£ 6
