Event description

Description

The Ghastling invites you to celebrate the launch of their 10th issue!

This will be a night of readings and storytelling in the infamous 300 year old underground vault where, allegedly, Dylan Thomas's ghost is said to wander...

There will also be tarot readings for a lucky few and a Museum of Curiosities for you to peruse.

For the Museum of Curiosities we invite you to bring that strange little object you've hidden away in a box with you for display in the Museum for the evening. There will be a prize for the best one!

The lineup is as follows:
