Join us for a night of spooky storytelling, as we celebrate the launch of Haunted Voices: An Anthology of Gothic Storytelling from Scotland.

Scotland has a vibrant tradition of oral storytelling and one that is very much alive and evolving today, though this can be overlooked. Haunted Voices: An Anthology of Gothic Storytelling from Scotland will showcase some of the best oral storytelling and storytellers in Scotland.

Expect retellings of dark tales from Scotland’s history, performance poetry and narrative prose. Haunted Voices will include monstrous tongue-eaters, shadowy demons, haunted video tapes, wicked priests, strange shapes in the darkness, a retelling of Poe’s The Raven… and more!

Our launch will feature four of the anthology’s storytellers who will perform their tale of terror.

Join us… if you dare.
