Story Telling Event – Thursday 28th October

‘Tales From The Dead Of Night’

Clare Reddaway of A Word In Your Ear returns to the Packhorse with two fellow storytellers, to bring you some spooky tales and run some shivers down your spine. Join us at the witching hour, if you dare!

We thought long and hard about hosting an outdoor event with fire pits, but the change in weather has reminded us how temperamental autumn and winter can be. We have now decided to host the event in collaboration with South Stoke village hall and can guarantee you a dry, warm, fun-filled evening. This event is suitable for 16+.

Here’s all the important stuff

Date: Thursday 28th October

Time: 7pm – 9pm (arrive from 6.30pm to pick up tickets and order drinks and nibbles for the second half)

Venue: South Stoke village hall, BA2 7DU

Cost: £6 payable on the door, one drink included in ticket price (mulled cider, hot chocolate or soft alternative)

We encourage the wearing of face masks at a village hall event – so bring one along please.

Please email diana@packhorsebath.co.uk to reserve your place – numbers will be limited.
