Year’s end: since time immemorial the season to huddle by the fireside and to shiver at tales of the supernatural. Join us beneath the Gothic vaults of the Queen’s University Graduate School to exhume this history, and to bring forth fresh tales of terror from your own nightmares. The evening will begin with a brief talk on how supernatural stories look backwards and forwards, as tales of caution, of the horrors of the past, and of hopes for the future. Then you can choose to continue the conversation with a discussion featuring readings from ghostly stories, led by seasonal horror expert Dr Derek Johnston. Or you can develop your own tale of the uncanny in a structured creative writing workshop, with novelist and playwright Dr Darran McCann.
This event is part of the Being Human festival - the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. As our festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets come to our events. To make sure we have a full house, we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
Is the venue wheelchair accessible?
