The House on Cold Hill @ Milton Keynes Theatre 16.04.2019

Things turn a bit darker this week at Milton Keynes Theatre with the arrival of Peter James’ THE HOUSE ON COLD HILL πŸ‘»

An empty old house with a grizzly past, what could go wrong?

Do YOU believe in ghosts?

However you answer that or even twist the question around to what is a ghost? We are all capable of giving ourselves a good scare.

A light bulb blowing and making us flinch or a floorboard creak that makes us listen closely or even how some of us turn the lights off downstairsand then race upstairs to for dear life to bed and safety. πŸ˜‚

Geez I love being human!

Our imaginative, sensitive, self-aware beings are perfectly made for ghost stories and spooks, creepy-looking houses and bumps in the night.

Best-selling author Peter James’ book THE HOUSE ON COLD HILL has been adapted for the stage and is on tour for 2019.

I haven’t read the book before and going to see this on the stage doesn’t matter one bit.

What I loved about THE HOUSE ON COLD HILL is that this is a ghost story set in the present day.

Although the house that stands on Cold Hill is hundreds of years old, there’s modern devices and there’s a modern family bringing it right into 2019. It’s extremely relatable and that is where some of the best scares come from. I will not be looking at certain things in my house the same way again (no big spoilers here but voice activated things in your house are nuts if you really think about it).

This is a ghost story for today.


The cast are brilliant. It’s a full star cast!

Joe McGadden and Rita Simons, Charlie Clements and Persephone Swales-Dawson who are all household faces from their TV work.

You guys rocked it. πŸ‘πŸ»


Also Tricia Deighton, PΓ‘draig Lynch, Leon Stewart and Simon Balcon who together make up the rest of the cast. πŸ’

I am now covered in goosebumps as I flick through my programme to realise there is no actors credited for any of the ghostly performers. I hope everyone saw what I did! πŸ˜…πŸ‘»πŸ˜­


I totally recommend THE HOUSE ON COLD HILL.

If a chilling tale of supernatural spookiness is your bag, get your butt over to see it while it’s in town.

Just make sure you don’t become the house’s next occupants!

Peter James’ THE HOUSE ON COLD HILL is at Milton Keynes Theatre from 15 – 20 APRIL 2019.

For full transparency, tickets for The House on Cold Hill were gifted to me from Milton Keynes Theatre. They have not asked me to post this or told me what to post. Dees is all my words.Β
