It all happened on Halloween near St. Paul's Cathedral...
To indulge in some ghoulish fun, kids could apply for a permission to haunt One New Change, as it had come to our attention that this new shopping centre didn't have any ghosts at all!
A secret club did the concept development for this Halloween event for The House of Fairy Tales last year.
Kenn Munk and I had a lot of fun coming up with the concept, which was inspired by the old Fighting Fantasy system, but turning it into a geographical experience.
Children applied for a Permission to Haunt, which led them and their parents on an extraordinary explorational journey through the area.
With the ghost office being the first stop on this spooky adventure, children would receive the necessary paperwork to be trained either as an apparition or a poltergeist. Written instructions were posted all around the area, to encourage children to read themselves into a paranormal story, partly of their own making.
Ghostly office clerks and other ghoulish undead of many kinds were there to help them along with different playful challenges, but also sometimes just to confuse them with their overzealous ghost office bureaucracy.
