Summer Hauntings: Uncanny Canny Tales £5/£3

Come and share...if you dare! 

Join Chris Bostock, The Storyteller, for stories of the weird and the wonderful.  Chris will delve into the murky waters of tales that may chill or thrill you, accompanied by music from Ken Patterson.

Chris is a professional storyteller. He tells traditional tales from many different cultures, to listeners of all ages. His stories are chosen to entertain, excite and encourage listeners to dream with open eyes.... and then to become storytellers themselves. Chris lives in Newcastle but has worked in England, Ireland, Scotland, Greece, France, Canada, and Singapore.  

Ken Patterson is a composer and performer based in the North East. He writes music and records for film, bands, choirs and theatre, and performs regularly with Chris.
