Ghost Stories for Christmas

Now in its 6th year, Brighton's original Ghost Stories for Christmas returns to the Lantern Theatre for an evening of macabre and chilling tales. "Ghost Stories for Christmas - Now We are Six" features stories by the legendary Joan Aiken and British masters of horror Clive Barker and Ramsey Campbell, and promises a journey through the darker sides of childhood, with tales of ghosts, vengeance from beyond the grave and something rather nasty lurking in the chimney.

Tickets are £10, including a glass of mulled wine/juice and a mince pie on arrival, with proceeds donated to the Brighton Alzheimer's Society.

Approx 1.5hrs plus 20minute interval.
