Ghostly Goings-On At The Dukes

The Signalman – which will be screened as part of Ghost Stories at Christmas at The Dukes

Christmas comes with a bit of a bump in the night at The Dukes on 15th December.

While the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take a night off from the theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol, there’s an advent evening of chilling tales in store.

Join Lancaster actor Steve Tomlin for a spooky fireside reading of ghost stories followed by a screening of The Signalman (PG) from the BBC’s spine-tingling series, A Ghost Story For Christmas.

Steve, who is known for being the 1991 BBC Mastermind champion and founding demi-paradise productions which stages events at Lancaster Castle, will read a Victorian Christmas ghost story.

Tarnhelm by Hugh Walpole is firmly rooted in the Lake District where Walpole lived.

The Signalman, which is screened afterwards, is based on the Charles Dickens’ short story and follows a lonely railway worker who is being haunted by a ghost from a nearby tunnel.

• Tickets for Ghost Stories at Christmas cost £7/£6(Concessions). Book at The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or online at www.dukes-lancaster.org
