About Us

Meet at twilight under the moon at Birkenhead Park and immerse yourself in tales of alchemy and legend from the West and East, brought to life with spellbinding theatre, magic and wonder.

Mystics take sanctuary in two enchanting parks of the East and West and keep alive the memories of all that’s gone before.

They flicker in the treetops and travel through hidden tunnels. West to East, East to West, anchored in the North.

They assembled many moons ago, and they are about to meet again to share with you the secrets of this mesmerising park after dark.

The Witching Hour is upon us.


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

Featuring live performance, a specially commissioned soundtrack, pyrotechnics and promenading action taking place in and around the audience, The Witching Hour explores local legend and folklore from Birkenhead Park in Wirral and East Park in Hull.
