Have a Frightful Halloween at The Old Crown in Digbeth
Birmingham oldest haunt is definitely the spookiest place to be in Birmingham this halloween! The Old Crown in Digbeth is a grade II listed building and was established in 1368. Being the oldest building still standing in Birmingham is pretty impressive but staff and regulars are convinced the pub is haunted.
After capturing footage of the ghost in action in the bar last year staff and customers continue to be spooked by the presence in the pub. Many staff have left due to these eerie encounters at night, owner, Ciaran Healy, says it can prove difficult finding staff to work there.
The pub is rumoured to have two resident ghosts one of them which haunts the 30ft well in the pub which was sunken over 1000 years ago.
Inspired by the pubs ghostly activity and to mark the recent release of the new ‘Blair Witch Project’ the pub is holding a special Halloween Party where guests can immerse themselves in a spooky forest full of deviour decor. The pub will be hosting a free Halloween Party on the 29th October. Fancy dress is heavily encouraged and there will be prizes for the best dressed.
As well as this on the eve of Halloween the pub has teamed up with Yelp Birmingham for a halloween dining experience like no other. Titled ‘The Bloodfeast’, this three course meal of the pub favourites dishes will be delivered with a halloween twist which might just leave some people running for the door! Admission is free, follow the link and sign up to Yelp to be in with a chance of taking a seat at the feast.
