A SOLD-OUT Swindon ghost walk for fans of a classic horror story has been cancelled.

The walk was scheduled for Saturday, January 12. It was due to begin at the Wyvern Theatre, just before the last show of a six-night run of Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black.

About 40 people had signed up for the ghost walk which was organised by local groups Paranormal Site Investigations and TS Theatre Productions. The plan was to guide them around various sites with alleged supernatural connections.

A Wyvern theatre spokesman said the walk was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
