Alton Towers Resort is celebrating Staffordshire Day with a very special offer but not everyone can take part.
The theme park will be offering half price entry for Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April, ahead of the Staffordshire Day celebrations on the 1st May.
However, to claim the discount you’ll need to be called either ‘Molly’ or ‘Lee’.
They will be accepting the following variations; Molly, Molea, Moleah, Molee, Molei, Moleigh, Moley, Moli, Molie, Mollea, Molleah, Mollee, Mollei, Molleigh, Molley, Molli, Mollie, Lee Leigh,Lea, Leah, Lei, and Ley.
To claim, simply turn up at the park’s Ticket Sales and Collection point with valid ID showing your full name, and quote ‘Molly Leigh’.
If you don’t have either name but are visiting over the same weekend, the good news is that there will be a few treats in store for you too such as free ice cream and rollercoaster fasttracks.
The discount comes as the park honours Molly Leigh, famous ‘witch’ of Staffordshire.
Legend has it that Molly Leigh was shunned by local villagers and accused of cursing the community.
After her death, locals said they were being terrorised by her restless ghost so the local pastor had her body exhumed and her pet raven thrown inside the coffin, which was then re-buried in the opposite direction.
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.
Over 300 years later her legend lives on – and in fact, is being brought to life in the theme park’s new Dungeon attraction .
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.
“We wanted to use the theme of Staffordshire Day to further highlight Molly’s story and do something memorable for our guests visiting over the celebratory weekend.”
