Vernacular Spectacular

Location: Thaxted

Date: Tuesday 7th May 2019

Price: £49 Per Person

Vernacular Spectacular: Tuesday 7th May

Just as the stories of ordinary people are so often lost in the noise of royalty and aristocracy so too is the majesty of our vernacular architecture lost in the shadow of palaces and churches.  We spend the morning in picture postcard Thaxted – a veritable Smörgåsbord of English vernacular architecture and in the afternoon enjoy a country tour and visit two spectacular cathedrals of wood. Please meet the expert Blue Badge Guide in Thaxted in Essex (15 minutes from Birchanger on the M11) at 10.30am for coffee (inc). Vernacular architecture is that which is domestic and functional and reflects locally available materials and skills. Already prosperous in Saxon times many mediaeval buildings survive from three boom centuries in the cutlery trade. On some of the timber framed houses there are important examples of the decorative plasterwork typical of the region known as pargetting. It’s good fun and very engaging identifying the period of the houses and their vernacular characters. Great stories too with Gustav Holst and the Red Vicar one time locals. Back to the pub for a two course lunch and in the afternoon we visit the massive and beautiful Cressing Temple Barns built during the lifetimes of Genghis Khan and St Francis of Assisi. There’s also a Tudor walled garden to enjoy and the opportunity to buy tea before making tracks for home at 4.30pm

Vale of Belvoir with Grantham & Melton Mowbray

Date: Tuesday 14th May 2019

Price: £54 Per Person

The Vale of Belvoir with Grantham & Melton Mowbray:

We visit Grantham and discover a remarkable and rare chained library and, of course, the birth place of the Iron Lady, take in wonderful panoramas on a drive across the Vale of Belvoir and end the day in Melton Mowbray. A two course lunch with coffee is served in the palatial surroundings of Stoke Rochford Hall. Meet the Blue Badge Guide in Grantham at 10.30am for coffee and biscuits (included). Grantham has a more interesting history than many other towns that make much more of a fuss about themselves. The super little museum focuses on the town’s two big names Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher. Explore the recreated 17th century apothecary shop where Newton lived and take a trip down memory lane in a 1979 living room on the eve of election victory. The eclectic Thatcher collection includes her lumpy childhood bed and an iconic suit worn to meet Mikhail Gorbachev. A short walk takes us to St Wulfram’s church set in a delightful cathedral like close to enjoy the magnificent interior including the Trigge Library – three hundred books, some over 500 years old, are chained to the shelves in the UK’s first public library. We return to the coach by the shop where the grocer’s daughter from Grantham grew up – so make sure you’ve brought your cameras, and enjoy a two-course lunch with coffee. In the afternoon we tour the beautiful Vale of Belvoir enjoying wonderful views of the quilted countryside, hearing about the Witches of Belvoir and looking out for the fairy tale turrets and towers of the Duke of Rutland’s Belvoir Castle. There’s more to Melton Mowbray than pork pies. This was once the place to be seen, where Beau Brummell, King of the Dandies, gathered with his hunting chums to talk foxes and fashions and from where the expression to paint the town red came from. Explore and find a spot to buy tea before heading home at 4.45pm

Cromer Seaside Trip

Location: Cromer

Date: Saturday 29th June 2019

Price: £17 Per Person

Perched on a clifftop overlooking pristine sandy beaches in North Norfolk, Cromer found fame as a traditional seaside resort in Victorian times, when the new railway line brought visitors from the smog-filled industrial cities to take the sea air.

A legacy of those days is Cromer’s magnificent pier, which now hosts the last end-of-pier show in Europe and was voted 2015 UK Pier of the Year.

At the bottom of the cobblestoned Gangway is the Henry Blogg Museum, named after the town’s most distinguished lifeboatman, who won the George Cross and the British Empire Medal. Nearby you’ll see on the shingle the fishing boats that go out every day to catch the famous and eponymous crab. The reason these little brown crabs are so tasty, meaty and succulent? It’s because they feed on the chalk reef just offshore, the longest in the world.

Or you could just luxuriate on the 4 mile stretch of fine sand that runs from West Runton to Overstrand.

School Holiday Special – Aldenham Country Park

Location: Aldenham

Date: Thursday 1st August 2019

Price: £14 Per Person

Being only 12 miles from central London it is no surprise that like London, Aldenham Country Park is steeped in history.

Aldenham Country Park lies in what was the medieval Aldenham Common which was the largest of several commons within the Manor of Aldenham. The name derives from Eladeham, meaning either ‘old home’ or Ealda’s home’. Over the years it was enhabited and/owned by King Offa in 785 AD. In the 9th century it was annexed by the Danes and was later reclaimed by King Alfred. During the Norman Conquests the Abbey of St Alban leased it to the Abbey of Westminster.

Following the dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539 a series of owners followed; in 1620 Henry Cogshill built a house called Wigbournes (probably where Haberdashers Aske’s Boys School now stands), then Sir Henry Carey (the first Lord Falkland) owned the land, followed by Lord Hollis and in the late 19th century Henry Hicks Gibbs, head of a local banking family who became Baron, Lord Aldenham in 1896.

The estate remained intact until the end of the Second World War when much of it was sold. The mansion and its immediate grounds became the Haberdashers Aske’s Boys School. Viccary Gibbs, son of the first Lord Aldenham, was a world specialist on trees and shrubs. Much of his collection was lost with the division of the estate but within the Park we still have The Avenues (a double row of Turkey Oaks flanked by hawthorn and lime) which was planted in 1880. In 1793, 68 acres of the Aldenham Estate was sold to the Grand Junction (later Grand Union) Canal Company for £2,051.

Wicksteed Park

Location: Wicksteed Park

Date: Saturday 17th August

Price: £14 Per Person

Wicksteed Park opened in 1921, making it the oldest theme park on UK mainland. Its founder, Charles Wicksteed purchased the land in 1913. His initial goal was to create a model village for the local community, however following World War One and housing reforms, Charles looked to develop a park for people to spend their leisure time. He set up a charitable trust in 1916 and went on to build a number of prefabricated houses – some of which still exist and are within the park grounds.

The large lake, a significant feature of the park, was dug by hand and steam ploughs in 1916-17. The railway, a favourite with visitors, was opened in 1931.

As an inventor and engineer Charles designed and built play equipment, often using bits and pieces from his engineering business, and creating swings and slides to thrill young and old alike. This business grew, eventually exporting play equipment to over 80 countries around the world.

Wicksteed Park is much more than an amusement park and continues to attract thousands of visitors each year to play and explore in its beautiful grounds.

THE TWISTED CLOWNS – The Greatest Show not of this Earth

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Clowns are here as you expected

An unhappy band of souls neglected.

Painted smiles with sharpened teeth

A wicked purpose underneath

The painted colours in ultra violet

There’s nothing here for you to smile at.

Nothing here is what is seems,

The painted walls will echo screams

The layout is in three dimensions

And all our clowns have grave intentions.

THE VILLAGE COVEN OF 13 – Keep a close eye on your soul

Alice Hemlock, Turners Hill

Was accused of causing ill.

A witch confirmed, tried and convicted,

Death upon her was afflicted.

Gather women, together strong

Vengeance for their cousin wronged.

But vengeance never stops at one

All to blame are cursed bar none.

And many others must bear guilt,

The bodies piled in mud and silt.

The women’s wrath is unconfined

The Coven feared and much maligned.

The purpose of the 13 strong

Is lost in who is right or wrong.

The thirst for blood and pain and death

Uttered in every cursing breath.

Turners Hill once rich and thriving

Now just 13 are left surviving.

Their souls are lost and black as pitch.

This village is held for the 13th witch.

THE CHOP SHOP – No Livered Quitters here

Howdy y’all. Billy-Bob here. You lookin’ for a real nice vehicle? Well here at The Chop Shop we got trucks for your bucks. You need a trailer? A pick up? How about our speciality, a good old cut & shut? We got all the best old wrecks ready for you right here. And if we ain’t got what you’re lookin’ for, well, perhaps my brother Billy-Joe and Billy-Ray can help you out with their special… renovations. You better be careful now, those two boys are real handy with a reconstruction, I’ll be darned if you’ve never seen no one handle a chainsaw like Billy-Joe.

And if Billy-Ray asks you to lean down and look into the trunk, I’d run. Remember folks, once you go scrap you don’t never go back. Ever.

THE CELLAR – Only for the very brave

The Cellar has long been a place where things are kept and forgotten. Lost things in the darkness scavenging to survive. But those that dwell in the Cellar have not been forgotten, they have been purposefully locked in. Imprisoned. Incarcerated. An experiment. What once was human is now a feral and malnourished murder of scavengers. Live These ‘Creatures’ have ransacked their ‘comfortable’ surroundings and turned it into a deadly game of cat and mouse. So when their captor releases the ‘live food’ into The Cellar they are the cat and YOU are the mouse

THE COLONY – Come if you’re a screamer

Survivors of the apocalypse are those who harbor the darkest hearts. Those who can survive the end of the world are the end of humanity. True humanity. Kindness, compassion and charity are no longer. These are souls of violence, malevolence and war. Survival of the fittest was never more apt but now a new threat has wracked The Colony. As theworld shook with debris and dark matter, the tectonic plates moved to create great gashes in the earth. A toxic gas from deep in the earth’s core escaped into the atmosphere. Now everyone’s days are numbered. But what will get you first? The poisonous air or the deadly inhabitants of The Colony? “Fair is foul and foul is fair. Fight through the fog and filthy air.”

THE VIXI – Only the strong survive

I have lived, therefore, I am dead.

Life is constructed of moments of time.  You live, time passes, you die, time continues.  But what about the moment between life and death?  They say that your whole life flashes before your eyes; all of that time played out in a single moment.   A torturous, painful and tormented moment before finality.  But time is a human construct, it does not exist.  Your torment may be fleeting or forever, and you have chosen to experience VIXI before your time.  The slaves of The Hellements know pain and fear and torture and the human nostalgia for time, and so they have decided to go Medieval!  Look forward to seeing this again before you die.

VISIT THE CREEPY COTTAGE – Not for Sissies

Throughout the years, the Haunted House has seen a lot of comings and goings and some say many of its previous inhabitants have stuck around, unable to pass over.  That doesn’t mean to say the long standing tenants aren’t friendly.  They’d like you to stay.  Stay for a very long time.  The spooks in here believe in a traditional welcome and will show you all around the house – even the winding corridors where the lights don’t work and the rooms where the floor boards have been eaten away by creepy crawlies.  There’s a lot of long since passed family members hanging around in there too – it seems so cruel to bury them underground…  Shocks and scares to bemuse and bewilder you.  Once you get in, will they let you back out?

VISIT THE CIRCUS OF HORRORS

Blending Horror and Burlesque with Bizarre and unbelievable acts from an almighty cast all performed to live rock music.

The world famous Dr Haze and his army of freaks have arrived at ShocktoberFest and will be taking you deep into  the heart of the Asylum where the most deadly dangerous & greatest Circus of Horrors performers from out inglorious past are detained inside the confines of the notorious Psycho Ward.

Check performance times on arrival at the park.

VISIT THE HAUNTED HAYRIDE

Explore the abandoned back lot……at the Horrorwood Film Studios Haunted Hayride! Back in the Golden Age of cinema, the Horrorwood film studios in their secret woodland location, were booming, full of glamour and intrigue and bursting with life. Now all old Horrorwood is bursting with is DEATH. After the terrible incident with the actor who played ‘The Woodsman’ the old studio was forced to close and all the movie sets and props remained abandoned in their woodland setting. Lots of actors lost their jobs, and were never on screen again, but worst of all, they lost their fame and celebrity. Some believe that the old actors from all of those years ago still act out the scenes of their glory days on the old set, unable to move on in this life, or the next. Lights, camera action!

There is also live music on two stages and Street Theatre

You can purchase a variety of food or drinks during the evening.

Our Coach is scheduled to leave Shocktober Fest at 11pm – Arriving home in the early hours.
