"bound to delight" The Telegraph
A wintry show for long, dark nights of ghostly tales brought to life through hand-drawn illustrations, masterful puppetry, cinematic projection and live music.
Discover what happened when the Devil came to Cornwall, strange happenings in a bewitched house in Devon, ghostly apparitions in Shropshire, a headless rider in Savernake Forest, Wiltshire and more.
Fascinating and imaginative storytellers, The Paper Cinema, create unique magical performances. For Ghost Stories, vivid pen and ink drawings capture these stories of the supernatural, accompanied by an eerily atmospheric soundtrack of violin, guitar, musical saw and live looping.
Suitable for 8 years upwards.
