Dissenters' Chapel, Kensal Green
391 Ladbroke Grove, W10 5AA London, United Kingdom
A chance to hear these classic ghost stories as you've never heard them before — in a graveyard. As dusk falls at Kensal Green cemetery the gatekeeper will guide you on a torchlit procession, picking your way through the tombstones until you reach the Anglican chapel.
There you can gather round by the light of the guttering candles as storyteller GILES ABBOTT takes you into the world of The Devil's Violin, The Unquiet Grave, The Girl With The Golden Arms, The Pardoner's Tale, The Grave That No-one Would Dig, Mrs Brown's Jigsaw Puzzle, The Earl King, Odysseus In The Underworld, The Cascade Of The Ghosts and other thrilling and spine-tingling tales of the dark, the demonic and the dead that won't stay dead.
Tickets £12. Each ticket includes one delightful Hendrick’s Gin cocktail and a 20% donation towards a host of restoration projects at Kensal Green Cemetery.
This salon in the cemetery is part of the London Month of the Dead 2017.
Giles Abbott started storytelling in 1999 in response to sudden, but not total, sight loss. Since then he has become an award-winning storyteller who just happens to be the UK’s only professional blind storyteller.
His repertoire includes Iron-Age myth from British and Norse traditions, Greek myths and folk tales from around the world.
Giles also works with both children and adults using storytelling to promote confidence, increase literacy and inspire a love of words.
