HALLOWEEN is on its way - and we have tickets to give away to a truly terrifying play at Trinity Arts Centre.

‘Oh, Whistle and I’ll Come to You, My Lad’ is a tale of nocturnal horror on the Suffolk coast, while ‘The Ash Tree’ is a story of witchcraft and vengeance down the generations.

Both were written by M R James - generally regarded by critics as the master of English ghost stories.

Every Christmas M R James would write and perform new tales, to entertain friends in his rooms in King’s College, Cambridge.

A century later, these still have a special power to terrify and amuse.

Robert Lloyd Parry recreates James’ entertainments in a truly atmospheric way, illuminated by candlelight and underscored by dread.

‘Oh, Whistle…’ is part of Lloyd Parry’s critically acclaimed M R James Trilogy, which has toured the UK, USA and Ireland since 2006. In 2008 it won The Dracula Society’s prestigious Hamilton Deane Award for Best Performance in the Gothic Genre.

R M Lloyd Parry performs Two Ghost Stories by M R James at Gainsborough’s Trinity Arts Centre on Friday 2nd November.

Tickets are £8 - £10 and are available by calling 01427 676655.
