at The Moat

A Shiver Down the Spine

What could be better on a cold winter’s night than curling up in a nice intimate spot to hear some of your favourite writers spin a tale? This winter we present three nights of storytelling in The Moat, featuring three stories each night from the best talents in town. All you have to do is turn up, wrap yourself around a warming beverage, picture an open fire and let yourself be carried away on a wave of imagination.

We enter the darkest depths of winter with three supernatural stories guaranteed to give you chills of a different kind. Featuring Josephine Rowe, David Astle and Wayne Macauley, and curated and presented by Chris Flynn.
