Join the team of “Tales from Rat City” for an unforgettable Live play theatrical event; a sequel to 2023’s Victorian Community History Award winning live play “William Bailey’s Haunted Mansion.

(A live real-play event is an interactive theatrical performance where our talented actors play through a roleplaying game).

It is the year 1890 and the streets of Ballarat have become gripped by ghost fever. The nightly depredations of the Ballarat Ghost have turned the gaslit streets of the city into a place of fear and dread. Even in the halls of the City Council The panic has reached such a state that a bounty has been offered a bounty for anyone able to put an end to “the person playing the ghost” in the dark corners of the city. Meanwhile, a far more sinister threat lurks beneath the city from a long-forgotten crime. Will our party of brave investigators be able to put an end to the terror of the Ballarat Ghost?

Supported by GUF, Chaosium, City of Ballarat and hosted by Ballarat Library

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
