Ghost Stories At Christmas

For three Sundays in December, we get spooky and offer up something different and hugely exciting for your pre-Christmas, Winter evenings.


An evening of eerie tales in the dark (but toasty warm) surroundings of one of Newcastle’s most storied historic buildings, the Black Gate at Newcastle Castle.

There will be a mix of folk tales, readings of classic ghost stories and local authors reading some of their own original work, 6pm-8pm.
Doors are 5.30pm.

£5 per ticket with absolutely no booking fee.
