THE DARK, THE DEVIOUS AND THE DEAD
A torchlit walk through the cemetery and puppet show at the Dissenters Chapel, Ladbroke Grove
On Saturday 6th October 2018 from 7:30 pm


The death of a beloved cat was the beginning of a journey into the world of shadows for Drew Colby, the UK's only full-time hand shadow performer. With nothing but light and dark he conjures up tales of deceit, trickery and mortality; ghostly, romantic poems of illicit love and fatal passion from beyond the grave in "The Highwayman" and "The Suffolk Miracle" and spookily humorous tales such as"The Witch called Five".

Tickets £12 including a Hendrick's gin cocktail. Please click here to buy.
