[fire crackling]

[light, eerie piano music]

Not far from here, there's

a place called the Vale.

About 100 years ago, a

young lady called Lucy

was getting ready

for her wedding,

so full of joy and excitement

that her lover Phillip

had proposed to her.

She invited all her family

and guests to the wedding.

The day came and Lucy

waited at the church

and waited, nobody came.

Finally, in fury Lucy went

into the woods and took an ax

and made her way to Phillip's

home in the dead of the night.

Lucy could hear Phillip

upstairs with someone else.

She slowly pushed

the bedroom door open

to find her lover on the

bed and laughing about Lucy.

She stood there shocked, as

a tear rolled down her cheek.

She lifted the ax and

violently butchered

both of them on the bed.

The screams could be heard

throughout the woods that night.

Later, Lucy came out of the

house as though in a trance

with the bloody ax

and her wedding dress

now covered in blood.

She slowly made her way

to the bridge with a rope.

Heartbroken from what she

had done, she put the noose

around her neck and hung

herself from the bridge.

To this day, in

the dead of night,

people still see the

spirit of Lady Lucy.

She's crying black tears

in search of Phillip,

the man she loved.

[people chattering]



[children chattering]

Shall I go and

get some tokens?

[children chattering]

Did you want some more?

[Woman] Yes please.

That's five pounds please.

- Thank you.

- Thank you.


[arcade music]

Ladies, gentlemen,

girls and boys

come one and all, ride the

ghost train, if you dare.

Do you wanna go on?

Yeah, can do.

[Ghost Man] Welcome.

Be careful.

Have fun.


[screaming and laughing]


I don't wanna go in.

[engine rumbling]


["De Camptown Races"]

[children chattering]

[Child] I'm gonna

get this one all.

[Child] Oh, oh yeah!

Love it, don't ya.

They'll be good as soon

as they pass the pole.

[children laughing]



Fairground again?

I can't just

forget about it, Tom.

He's my brother.

How do you feel about

us getting our own place like,

in a, in a couple of months.

You wanna move in together?

Do I stutter?

Yes, I do.

Yeah, absolutely I think

as soon as your mum gets

everything sorted we

should definitely do that.

Tom, can we just not talk

about my family problems?

I just want to forget about

it this weekend, okay?

Things will be okay.

And how do you know that?

Well, because you've got me

and I'll not let anything

happen to hurt you.

Your dad's going

away for a long time

for what he did to your mum.

Babe, I'm really sorry.

I, I know that things are really

hard for you at the moment.

I can't even begin to imagine

what you must be going through.

But I love you.

Promise, I'm gonna spend

the rest of my life

trying to make you happy.

Hey, I've got a joke for you.

Go on.

How can you tell if a

blonde has her own vibrator?

Don't know.

She got the

chips on her tooth.

Oh my god.

Well, I didn't say it

was a good joke, did I?

But I'm a brunette.

Made you laugh, though,

didn't it, dumbass?

So yeah, in a few months,

we'll get our own place

together, then, yeah?

Yeah, I mean, we could

always rent somewhere, I just,

[sighing] we need to get

out of that town, Tom.

There is nothing there for us.

No, you're right, there isn't.

Do you know what?

In the morning, I want

you to make me breakfast.


I want, eggs, bacon,

two sausages, beans,

I want the lot.

We'll see.
