CARNACKI: THE OCCULT DETECTIVE AT TEA HOUSE THEATRE
Edwardian stories of the supernatural are the theme of this new stage production from Don’t Go Into The Cellar Theatre Company. Feel the chill of tales that travelled the land from the comfort of a cosy pub theatre with a lit fire and, if you choose, an accompanying three-course meal. Be careful not to confuse this occult with recent happenings at Bonnington Café, however!
Brunswick House was built in 1758 and originally stood in 5.5 acres of parkland, before the railways arrived in the mid-19th century. Plans were made to replant the garden further down the river and build a train terminus, before a fire in 1845 led to a railway company buying the building to create offices for their goods yards.
It has since been used as a WWII munitions store and a film set – when it was painted to represent a NAAFI on an RAF base. More recently MI5 and MI6 staff and police met at the club, apparently concerned that their own buildings were bugged.
In 1994 it was sold by British Rail to the staff association but then a crafty member managed to forge signatures to sell it on to property developers. Current owners, LASSCO, bought a rather battered Brunswick House in 2002 and began the restoration to the wonderful reclaim store and restaurant you can visit today.
