Ghost of Drury Lane

Drury Lane has been called one of the world's most haunted theatres. The most famous ghost is the 'Man in Grey'. This ghost appears dressed as a nobleman of the late 18th century with powdered hair beneath a tricorne hat, a dress jacket and cloak or cape, riding boots and a sword. Many believe that the "Man in Grey" is the ghost of a man whose skeletal remains were found during renovation in the late 1970's. The skeleton was found wearing a grey riding coat with a knife sticking out of its ribs. It is believed that a sighting of this ghost is a good omen bringing luck to the play and good ratings at the box office.
