The Witching Hour

  • Park Drive Birkenhead CH41 4HY (map)

In the hour between twilight and dark, restless souls appear – in the echo of a song, a rumble of thunder, a trick of the light.

They flicker in the treetops and travel through hidden tunnels. West to East, East to West, anchored in the North.  From the magical Alleys of East Hull to the Witches Circle in Birkenhead.

These souls take sanctuary in two enchanting parks and keep alive the memories of all that’s gone before.

The Witching Hour is a brand-new outdoor performance commissioned for Hull and Wirral – two amazing locations each using culture to breathe energy into place and connect communities.

Designed to connect people and inspire imagination, the performance explores stories of local wise women, magical mythical characters and childhood memories from East Park in Hull and Birkenhead Park in Wirral. The Witching Hour will immerse audiences across the country in a unique and shared experience, weaving a story between the two locations.

Commissioned by Absolutely Cultured and Wirral Borough of Culture 2019.
