Warnings to the Curious Ghost Stories by MR James
WARNINGS TO THE CURIOUS - Ghost Stories of M.R. James
with Suzette Field and Troylus Searll
Sunday 25th October at 6:00 pm


GHOST STORIES BY CANDLE LIGHT IN BROMPTON CEMETERY- SOLD OUT

IMPORTANT ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS:
As Brompton Cemetery will be closed to the general public from 5 pm, the only entrance that will be open for the ghost stories is the one on Old Brompton Road. We chose this entrance as it is located directly next to West Brompton underground station which is on the District Line.

Also please note that the entrance will be open from 6:00 pm and the performance will start at 6:20 pm. This will give us enough time for everyone to arrive, grab their cocktails and take their seats.



A chance to hear these classic ghost stories as you've never heard them before - in a graveyard. As dusk falls in Brompton cemetery the gatekeeper will guide you on a torchlit procession, picking your way through the tombstones until you reach the chapel. Find a pew by candlelight, fortify your spirits with a complimentary glass of Hendrick's gin and listen to SUZETTE FIELD read a selection of M.R. James's chilling tales of demons, curses and vengeance from beyond the grave. Sepulchral music will be provided by TROYLUS SEARLL at the piano. In the guttering light of the candles try not to think of the 35,000 cadavers who may be eavesdropping outside. Definitely not an experience for the faint of heart.

This event has now sold out.
