Should you be frightened of Ogee Heads or a Dish of Tongues?
What about Knuckerholes or Devil's Children?
Or even Pacy's Bloodhole or the Friends of Hectate?

To find out the answers to these and many other spooky questions, join the Insurance Institute of Sussex as they take part in this walk around the town of Worthing, finding out about its spooky past and present!

Over the next 90 minutes the tour will wander slowly around the town (covering a total distance of about 2km) before ending where it started, outside the theatre.
