'The old dark house lives again in a wide-ranging tribute to the ghostly genre.'
Ramsey Campbell, the UK's most successful living horror author, on The Haunting of Blaine Manor.
But the added element that has really driven the show this week has been the amazing audiences and their reactions to the show both during and after. The show is a ride on its own but the audiences have made it even more of a ride. A huge thank you to those of you that have attended so far and for your wonderful compliments for the show, they are lifting us all and spurring us on to do even better.
On top of that we have had some amazing photography for this run from Darren McGinn and Shay Rowan, superb work guys and your images will be seen and credited again and again, thank you.
You can see their work below.

Come and join us for the ride and a fantastic night out...
I'm rather looking forward to opening the Manor doors to our guests for our remaining two nights.
For travel to the Manor train is recommended as you can disembark at Salford Central Railway Station, turn left out of the station and you will see The Salford Arms some fifty to sixty yards st the end of the street, it is on the corner of Bloom Street, the esteemed residence and local public house THE KINGS ARMS - the current residence of BLAINE MANOR - is at the end of Bloom Street on the left.
Those travelling by automobile it is recommended you arrive early as parking is difficult, and there is a chance of a tussle with a banshee or demon (traffic wardens, they work till nine) single line parking is fine after 6, some single line spacing is on Bloom Street and if you come out of Bloom Street turn left onto Chapel Street, you'll find some single line parking there too. Other than that it's the City Car Park zones close to the venue. Do give yourselves enough time and drive safely.
