Lauderdale House hosted a Halloween panto last week with a series of socially distanced shows - and spooky costumes galore.
The Lost Toys, written and directed by Highgate’s Tim McArthur, was performed on the tea lawn as audience members came dressed in impressive Halloween attire, turning themselves into everything from pumpkins to spiders.
The fairytale performance took place over three sittings between October 21-23. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the show replaced Lauderdale House’s annual spooky walk which normally follows a trail around the 440-year-old house and grounds.
Lauderdale House director Katherine Ives said: “We were so happy to do ‘something’ for Halloween as it is such a core part of our annual programme and we know how much families love to dress up and get into the spirit.
“Also, at a time when there is so little work for creatives it was wonderful to give our professional team a chance to use their talent.”
