IT is coming to the haunting time of year when spirits stalk the underworld and witches fly across the moon on their broomsticks.
And if that prospect doesn’t give you Shivers then a trio of new ghost stories should certainly do the trick.
Coming to the Millgate Arts Centre, Delph on Sunday, October 28, Shivers is the name of a one-night only production by Adam Z Robinson.
Featuring original stories reminiscent of the ghost story greats, M.R. James, E Nesbit and Charles Dickens, Shivers is a riveting and creepy storytelling experience.
It combines elements of gothic horror and traditional storytelling set to violin accompaniment from Ben Styles.
Together, the stories and music produces a show as intimate and cosy as it is hair-raising.
The Storyteller, Adam Robinson, weaves three spooky and spellbinding tales in The Book of Darkness and Light some of the most chilling stories ever told. Supernatural mysteries stir from its pages.
The Musician creates the perfect ghostly atmosphere with a specially composed soundtrack.
The tales are filled with terrifying folklore, ancient superstition and contemporary hauntings… with a few surprises along the way.
You feel a prickle on your neck. Your blood stills. A monstrous thing creeps in the shadows. Is it all in your mind? A trick of the light? Or something far more sinister?
In keeping with the spirit of Halloween but slightly less dark is Velma Celli’s Equinox on Sunday, November 1.
Velma is the drag alter ego of West End star Ian Stroughair, performing a witches themed concert, described as camp, fun, halloweeny, a spell-binding musical journey from Ursula to Elphaba.
