Spirits of the Night

Spirits of the Night Poster

Spirits of the Night is a theatrical performance at the historical Charters Towers Pioneer Cemetery.  The dramatised evening walk-through will highlight the lives of those who helped forge this town’s character.

The tour will be guided by a ”resident” (an actor) of the cemetery who will introduce the tour group to the pioneers, the locals, traditional landowners, their stories, tragedies, mysteries, loves, losses, and triumphs.

Nine stories of those who are buried beneath the crumbling headstones will be brought to life. Local performers will use historical facts to retell stories from the past through re-enactments, music, and song.

Through the voices of today, lives of the past are told, sharing stories which touch the spirit of the late 1800s.

When: 5 - 7 August 2022 from 6:30pm
