Come and join the party for a few ‘frights and bites’ in the best possible taste as we get up close and personal with some classic gothic writers and iconic film makers.
Its 1816 in Geneva, and the Shelleys, with Mary’s step sister Jane, are holidaying with their friend (and Jane’s lover) Lord Byron. During a very rainy summer they entertain each other with ghost stories – from which Mary’s classic novel will be born.
In 1951 William Hammer and his son Anthony arrive at Down Place in Berkshire with the object of reviving the Hammer Films in a new direction and in a purpose built studio. Alfred Hitchcock meanwhile has arrived in England looking for inspiration for his new project..........
.......and in 2018 a business consortium eye up the old Hammer Horror studios with a view to recreating the classic genre.
With the usual eclectic mix of cabaret, drama and offbeat humour – this is something all ‘ghouls’ and boys will enjoy. So don’t be afraid to come and join us at The Orwell for a ‘monster’ evening of entertainment.
