The Rother-Howl Walk has been a popular performance by first and second year Degree Performing Arts students for the last two years, with this year getting an even spookier re-boot by Higher Education Performing Arts Programme Leader, Karen Mulcahey and her writing partner Tony Steele.

On Halloween, Performing Arts students came together again to guide the public through ‘Rother-Howl Returns’; a ghoulish performance that took an audience around various sites in the town centre, with ghostly stories, werewolves and zombies along the way!

The walk began outside the Civic theatre and ended at the 1915 bar, where there were further performances including a Thriller dance, as well as a seasonal vegetable soup to help the audience warm up after their chilly walk. There was also a fancy dress competition where the most terrifying costume won a prize.

The project was created in partnership with Rotherham College and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council Events Team, but also had valuable help from other Rotherham College students, including students from Media assisting with filming and production and Media Make-Up students perfecting scary make-up effects.
