Some people call dem duppy.
Dem is the half of we spirit that stay on earth.
The other half gone to the ancestors.
Most is good, some is pure trouble.
Some well, they just like mischief.
A duppy has gone loose in St Pauls and leading duppy hunter, Josie needs your help tracking it down. You will be Josie’s eyes and ears, helping her to solve the riddles the duppy leaves on its trail. Zipping past Stapleton Road, cutting through Pennywell Road, crossing the Danny, before heading onto to St Pauls, every location holds a personal resonance for Josie – conjuring up nostalgia and a Bristol of yore. As you travel through St Pauls, you may begin to wonder if this duppy is hiding something. One thing is for sure – you need to find it and fast.
Duppy Hunter: A Local’s Guide to St Pauls, Bristol is the third instalment in the Ends & Tales series. The adventure begins at the Trinity Centre (BS2 0NW). Participants will be navigated through and around St Pauls in Bristol, on a journey that lasts 50-90 minutes (depending on how much you want to explore!).Learn more Book now

A Coney & Tamasha digital joint project, in collaboration with Rightful Place Theatre Company, supported by Derwent London and Rich Mix.

Be our guest in the land of shadows
There are ghosts in these walls if you listen hard enough
And if you’re here after dark
You might even catch a glimpse….
We Are Shadows: A Local’s Guide to Brick Lane invited audiences to discover the real Brick Lane – from Bengali laskars to Satanic wedding guests, local wrestlers to the street’s most successful family. These people have cast their shadows onto the pavements of E1. Beyond the curry house strip and trendy bar culture, this place has history.
