A WREATH OF FESTIVE FRIGHTS

MONDAY 16 DECEMBER – 7.30pm

A Wreath of Festive Frights is the follow-up to our hugely successful show, Ghost Stories for Christmas.

Join resting actor Alfred St John Merrimoon once again, as he regales his audience with more unsettling tales of seasonal spooks, winter wraiths and Christmastime horrors. Huddle closer to the fireplace and keep away from the shadows, for who knows what might be lurking just out of sight? An amusingly chilling way to see in this special time of year!

Jonathan Goodwin writes and performs in this original show. The play is co-directed by Goodwin and Gary Archer.

Tickets: £12pp (£10pp with Middleport Pottery membership).
Call to book: 01782 499766 (10am – 4pm)

Please be aware that this performance is not suitable for children under the age of 12, due to the subject matter.
