Haunted at The Sill

Event date:
27th October 2019
The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

Locally based professional actors Stephen Tomlin and Grace Kirby from Demi-paradise Productions return to the Sill with three more spine-tingling ghostly tales for Halloween.

The contrasting stories chosen are a mix of modern and classical narratives by some of the greatest writers in the genre.

This year’s selection features The Phantom Coach by Amelia B Edwards (1831-1892). A journalist, leading Egyptologist and best-selling novelist Amelia also wrote ghost stories of which The Phantom Coach (1864) remains the best known today.

A wonderfully atmospheric gothic tale set on the isolated snowbound moors of the North Pennines it really is the perfect story to be heard read aloud at The Sill!

Haunted is a different kind of listening entertainment and the performers think it suitable for everyone and anyone over the age of 11. So come and join us – if you dare on Sunday 27th October at 7.30.
