Uncanny Collective have announced their first online festival!
Warnings to the Curious is a virtual festival celebrating the tradition of telling ghost stories at Christmas.
The festivities start on Wednesday 16th December with two free events – a creepy Christmas quiz and a reading of M. R. James’ A Warning To The Curious. Both will take place on Uncanny Collective’s YouTube Channel.
The following nights will feature a mixture of storytelling, performances and other events designed to bring you a healthy dose of creepy festival cheer.
There will be a combination of both brand new writing from a host of talented artists and performers and classic stories from legendary writers of the macabre. There will also be a giveaway or two and the chance to vote for your favourite Christmas ghost stories and films.
Tickets for the individual shows are £6 each (except the free Wednesday events) and you can purchase a full access festival pass for only £20.
