Over a century after they were first published, the ghost stories of M R James retain their power to terrify and amuse. This gripping one man show retells two of the earliest and eeriest.

In Canon Alberic's Scrap-book, a young Cambridge antiquary discovers the devil in the details of an old book in a medieval town in the French Pyrenees...

In The Mezzotint a ghoulish revenge is enacted within a work of art before the helpless eyes of a museum curator in Oxford.

Tickets cost £15 which includes a glass of mulled wine for you to enjoy during the reading.
