Four new ghost stories performed in Levenshulme Old Library by lantern light this Christmas.
This Christmas, Levenshulme Old Library has commissioned new ghost stories from four writers for a very special atmospheric winter event.
Ghost stories at Christmas have long been an oral storytelling tradition, from tales told around the winter fire through to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. This moved into the TV era with A Ghost Story for Christmas, a series of late night television films broadcast on the BBC which continue to this day.
This Christmas come and hear four brand new festive ghost stories written by some of the North West's finest writers, each read in full at an atmospheric performance at Levenshulme Old Library, our historic former Carnegie library building in South Manchester.
The building will be dimly lit by lantern light and four separate spaces will each be allocated to one of the writers. The audience will be split into four groups and led from one room to the next, hearing each story read in full before moving on to the next room.
