Visitors to the Union Canal will have the chance to experience a world of body snatchers, love, murder and deceit this August as the Falkirk Tunnel is transformed into a unique pop-up theatre venue telling the grisly tale of two of Scotland’s most notorious criminals.
The unique pop-up theatre experience will see visitors explore the Union Canal’s Falkirk Tunnel, expertly guided by Messrs Burke and Hare – two of the men who helped carve the colossal channel.
This dark tour comes with a warning, though: it might be the change in temperature, the perpetual darkness or the sound of whispering across the water, but something unnatural lurks in the shadows of the tunnel – and in the hearts of your guides.
