Storyteller Ben Heggarty conjures new dreams for "First Friday" in June


Internationally renowned storyteller Ben Haggarty, writer of The DFC‘s Mezolith and Will Scoggins Skull strips, returns to Lancaster on Friday 6th June and slips behind the lights into the dark side of fairground, where you risk getting more than you bargained for.

Via urban legend, fairytale and freak-show, ready yourself for an alarming journey through the ambivalent mythology of the Sandman for this Lancaster Arts City First Friday event.

Comic creator Ben Haggarty is a central figure in contemporary UK storytelling and has been featured on numerous radio programmes including BBC Radio 4’s MidweekA Good Read, and The Today Programme. He is internationally respected for his passionate and lively performances.

The event is one of a number of appearances by Ben across the UK this year, including a performance of The Grateful and the Dead at the Ashwell Music Festival on 23rd May. 

- Ben Haggarty: Litfest Auditorium, The Storey, Meeting House Lane. Not suitable for under 14′s. Tickets cost £10.00 (£8 concessions) and can be booked through eventbrite or by calling 01524 62166
