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 third annual Scare Slam.
Prepare yourself for a night of chilling tales from both sides of the line of veracity.
Come on down for a scare, or, if you’d like to contribute a story, see below for info.
