If you are lucky enough to be born with either of these two names, you’re in luck as Alton Towers will be offering half price entry to guests with special names for TWO days this month.
Alton Towers Resort will be offering half price entry to guests called Molly (Molea, Moleah, Molee, Molei, Moleigh, Moley, Moli, Molie, Mollea, Molleah, Mollee, Mollei, Molleigh, Molley, Molli, Mollie) or Leigh (Lee, Leigh, Lea, Leah, Lei, Ley) as part of their Staffordshire Day celebrations later this month.
On Saturday April 27 and Sunday April 28 the theme park will honour the discount to anyone who arrives at admissions with valid ID proving that they share a name with Molly Leigh, the ‘witch’ of Burslem, Staffordshire, who stars in the new Alton Towers Dungeon.
Over the weekend, the theme park will also be surprising guests with a range of freebies as random acts of kindness, including free ice-cream, doughnuts and fastracks.
This year, Staffordshire Day, coordinated by Destination Staffordshire, has the theme ‘Made in Staffordshire’ and will celebrate the county’s brewing and ceramic heritage, as well as food and drink, music, and people made here.
To mark the occasion Alton Towers Resort has chosen to honour Molly Leigh, a local legend whose story is embedded within the region, renowned for being shunned by the local villagers and accused of cursing the community.
After her death locals said they were being haunted and terrorised her restless ghost. The Pastor Spencer then had her body exhumed and had her pet Raven thrown inside the coffin, which was then re-buried in the opposite direction.
Over 300 years later her ghostly tale lives on and has been brought to life in the new Alton Towers Dungeon, a live actor led experience takes guests on a hilariously hideous journey through Staffordshire’s darkest history.
It mirrors the lesser known and unlikely end to Molly’s story. In a random and bemusing twist of fate, a copy of her Will that was recently recovered showed that following her death, Molly had in fact left all her fortune to benefit the local church and the very community that ostracised her.
James Walker from Alton Towers Resort said: “We are proud to be located in the heart of Staffordshire and looking forward to celebrating Staffordshire Day again in a unique and fun way.
“The new Alton Towers Dungeon gave us a great opportunity to delve into the history of Staffordshire and it goes without say that the legend of Molly Leigh really struck a chord.
To Claim This Offer
To claim half-price entrance to the theme park on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April, guests must bring along photo ID, with their full name, to the Ticket Sales and Collection point and quote ‘Molly Leigh’.
