Something in the Shadows


Part of the Nottingham Festival of Words. There is something in the shadows, waiting for the evenings to grow longer and darker, waiting to emerge. Discover the darker side of human nature and see shadows spring to life.

Join us for an evening of thrilling and spine-chilling stories of ghosts, the macabre and the evil that lurks just out of sight. A performance storytelling show for an adult audience (not recommended for children under 12). The show will last approximately two hours, including an interval.

Little Gem Storytelling is Emma Carlton and Gary Keane.

Please note: the Great Hall is on the first floor of Newstead Abbey and unfortunately there is no wheelchair access.
