Blackshaw’s Scare Slam – at the London Horror Festival

A night of chilling storytelling, produced by Blackshaw Theatre Company

Lovers of scary stories, unite. Adding the fear factor to increasingly popular spoken word nights, storytellers from across the Horrorfest and beyond will share their worst (or should that be best?) nightmares at Blackshaw’s fourth annual Scare Slam.

Prepare yourself for a night of chilling tales from both sides of the line of veracity.
