Ray Cluley, John Costello, Joseph D'Lacey and Alison Littlewood

On Friday 30 November we have an incredibly special evening of horror planned for you. Ray Cluley, John Costello, Joseph D’Lacey and Alison Littlewood will all be reading at our Christmas Event running from 6-9PM in The Writer’s Room at The University of Warwick. This is a free but ticketed event – please e-mail with the subject line ‘Christmas Warwick’ to confirm your place today.

There will be festive refreshments available and a contribution box for these. We also encourage you to bring your own food and drinks, to get into the Christmas spirit. Speaking of Christmas spirits there will be ghostly and ghoulish Christmas tales with our usual horror twist.

We’ll see you on Friday 30 November!

  1. It is times like these on christmas and thanksgiving time that I hate not being able to attend and be around others like me- writers- who pour there heart into tales of all kinds and the horror tales holds a special place in my heart, becuase I love mystery and horror. Horror to me is being seated inside a grand and gorgeous 1940’s victorian stlye living room and dressed a the finest victorian attire in victorian times, and I’m seated beside a roaring lavender fireplace with a mystery book in my hands and there’s a flock of young and old seated around me on every side and I’m reading from the heart and suddenly I come to a dark part of the book and the atmospehere around me suddenly darknes and something creepy happens- the listeners eyes darken spooky and pour blood and there teeth sharpen like vampires or the sort and they turn at me and crawl like spiders and I scream and suddenly I am wide awake on my bed.
