Château Ghoul

“LipService - The Laurel and Hardy of literary deconstruction” The Independent

Château Ghoul is East Yorkshire's go-to boutique hotel offering themed weekends.

Our hosts Brian and Brenda Binns or B&B as they are known introduce a cornucopia of events: their supernatural sensation - Psychic Attraction, (like Fatal Attraction but without the rabbit), their Tour de Yorkshire Lycra Festival, Funghi Foraging with Slippery Jack and Chanterelle. Guaranteed fun for all the family, the only trouble is – the guests keep dying...This is a multimedia haunted house thriller.

On tour throughout 2022

Back in January in the absence of live theatre we offered the show as an interactive Zoom event. Here is some of the feedback.

“Thank you so much for inviting us to Château Ghoul and for cheering us up with what was one of the best online theatre shows we’ve seen since C-19! You managed to maintain everything special about Lip Service using the Zoom platform - and add to it”.

“Thank you for a welcome dose of daft amid these dreary days”

“A real breath of fresh air. I loved the interactive element. Almost as if we were there with you! Please do more”.
