Ghost Hunt at The Playhouse Theatre, Wombwell, Barnsley

Ghostly Goings-on at Park Street, Wombwell - April 21st, 8:30pm - 2am

In 1969 the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Park Street was bought for the the Wombwell Thespians Amateur Dramatic Society by a local businessman for the princely sum of £800. Between 1969 and 1973 members of the group and their friends, with the help of many other local people converted the building into a theatre. The old pews were used to build the stage and seats were replaced by ones from the Globe Theatre Barnsley when it closed down in 1990. The Playhouse Theatre opened in 1973, the first production being " Spring and Port Wine ".

Local History archives have revealed many untimely deaths to the occupants of house situated on Park Street, near to the Chapel in the early 1900,s due to burning, road accidents plus numerous suicides in the old canal which was opposite the Chapel.
