Three chilling tales. Two ghostly performers. One thrilling night.

‘The tale transfixed both me and the rest of the audience as we sat enthralled.’  The Culture Vulture

Legend has it that many years ago a book of terrifying tales was found. Now, you are invited to discover the secrets of The Book of Darkness & Light.

Join The Storyteller and The Musician for an evening of spine-tingling tales and haunting live music. Three ghost stories for Christmas to delight and horrify, accompanied by the beautiful sounds of the violin. Be thrilled, chilled and thoroughly entertained by this charming storytelling experience. But, be warned, once the pages of the book are opened… anything could happen.
