Halloween at Old New-Gate Priston & Copper Mine will be held on October 12th and 19th from 6 pm to 9 pm at the Old New-Gate Prison in East Granby.

This October you are invited to experience the dark side of history at Old New-Gate Prison & Copper Mine. The museum will be alive with spirits of the past. Watch out for our prisoners including the famous murderess Thirza Mansfield, and others escaping their graves for one night!

Old New-Gate is devilishly delighted to partner with Cambridge House Brew Pub to offer guests (21+) a tasting of their exclusive New-Gate beer! Also look forward to live music and historically haunted tours of the copper mine. Mine access will be limited to the time slot that you sign up for.

Food will be available for purchase from local smokehouse Smokey Water Rib Co.!

Live Music:

October 12th: Thabisa

October 19th: Jeff Mainville’s Acoustic Smackdown
