Halloween 1666, Plague, Portends & Fire


The CADW dragon flew back to Monmouthshire and perched himself inside Raglan Castle. Visitors dared to stand inside the dragon’s giant claw as they are ‘captured’ by the mythical monster at Raglan Castle.


Jeannine Hopkins, Monika Kudaseva (originally from Lithuania) and Tiffany Parsons are photographed (Left to Right) looking into their future as witches at the Halloween 1666, Plague, Portends & Fire weekend event at Raglan Castle. Tiffany said: “We are having a weirdly great time here in the amazing location of Raglan Castle. We are loving the wild Welsh countryside and all of the spooky goings on.” 

Monika Kudaseva and Andrew Tivenan were photographed at Raglan Castle looking for some body! Looking after the lost souls that visited the long dark shadows of the ancient castle were the spooky sisters Jill Cale and Emma Gwinnutt. Andrew said: “It is ugly and it is scary. It is creepy and it is spooky, enough to cause the most brave person to cry and run away. However enough about me…”

Ready for showtime at the castle including members of the Amicorum reenactment group Sam Tivenan, Polly Parsons, Monika Kudaseva, Tiffany Parsons and  Jeannine Hopkins.

Monika said: “Its great to see families enjoying the history of the castle and learning through tales of the past. Children can come to terms with fear and the unknown as well as to gain an insight into the different belief structures of people throughout time.”


Halloween or Hallowe’en also known as All Saints’ Eve, is a celebration observed on the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed
