TALES OF BEYOND
A Torchlit Cemetery Walk and Candlelit Ghost Stories with Giles Abbott
Sunday 15th October 2017 from 7:30 pm


A chance to hear these classic ghost stories as you've never heard them before - in a graveyard. As dusk falls at Kensal Green cemetery the gatekeeper will guide you on a torchlit procession, picking your way through the tombstones until you reach the Anglican chapel.

There you can gather round by the light of the guttering candles as storyteller GILES ABBOTT takes you into the world of The Devil's Violin, The Unquiet Grave, The Girl With The Golden Arms, The Pardoner's Tale, The Grave That No-one Would Dig, Mrs Brown's Jigsaw Puzzle, The Earl King, Odysseus In The Underworld, The Cascade Of The Ghosts and other thrilling and spine-tingling tales of the dark, the demonic and the dead that won't stay dead.

Tickets to this event have now sold out.

GILES ABBOTT
Giles Abbott started storytelling in 1999 in response to sudden, but not total, sight loss. Since then he has become an award-winning storyteller who just happens to be the UK’s only professional blind storyteller.

His repertoire includes Iron-Age myth from British and Norse traditions, Greek myths and folk tales from around the world.

Giles also works with both children and adults using storytelling to promote confidence, increase literacy and inspire a love of words.

Travel advice to the Dissenters' Chapel - During the day guests can walk through the cemetery to get to the chapel but at night the main cemetery gates on the Harrow Road will be closed and the only accessible entrance is on Ladbroke Grove. Previously the address for this entrance was 364 Ladbroke Grove but this number has now been updated to 391.

The two closest underground stations are Ladbroke Grove (Hammersmith & City or Circle Line) or Kensal Green (overground and Bakerloo Line). From Ladbroke Grove station there are several buses you can take to the Dissenters which include either the 28, 52 or 452. It's best to get off at the Sainbury's bus stop and then it's a short walk down Ladbroke Grove to the entrance to the Dissenters' Chapel.
