A chilling night out

COTTON Grass Theatre will be presenting an evening of spooks and apparitions based on the stories of M.R. James.

It is to be held in the ballroom at the Whitworth Centre in Darley Dale, on Friday, February 4, and goes under the title of Haunted.

Two men meet in the gloom of a private club and an evening of ghost-watching turns into a storytelling session. They tell tales of perturbed spirits that cannot rest. Tales that play on our subconscious anxieties, tales of frightening discovery from the acknowledged master of this peculiarly English genre.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. There will be a licensed bar, free parking, disabled access and tickets cost £8 (£7 concessions). Call Sarah Bennett on 01629 733759.
