Ghost Stories for Christmas
Saturday 6th December 2014
Have yourself a scary little Christmas with this fiendishly frightening evening of ghostly tales!
The second annual Brighton Ghost Stories for Christmas charity fundraiser will be performed at Brighton Pavilion on Saturday 6th December 2014 in aid of RISE, a domestic abuse charity working in Brighton, Hove and West Sussex
A Christmas Tradition
Mention the words ‘Christmas ghost story’, and most people will automatically think of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. But the practice of gathering around the fire at Christmastime to tell ghost stories was a popular Christmas tradition long before Dickens put pen to paper. In fact the telling of ghost stories was once as much a part of Christmas as the turkey and Christmas tree is to us now.
In December 2014 Blind Piper Productions will be reviving this tradition at Brighton Royal Pavilion with an evening of mulled cider and performances of classic ghost stories by MR James, E.F. Benson and Mary Eleanor Wilkins Freeman.
Proceeds to RISE
Proceeds from the event will be donated to RISE. The event has been kindly sponsored by Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company
Ticket price includes a glass of mulled cider on arrival and entry into a prize draw, with prizes donated by Indian Summer, The Duke of York's Cinema, Sussex County Cricket Club, Choccywoccydoodah, Southern Rail, Helen Joubert Designs and more.
So pull up a chair, gather closer in the candlelight and welcome in the season with a dose of Christmas Spirits.
