As Ophelia waved her tail in farewell and our very own Brian approached with all the stormy power its name suggests, our Tales From The Graveyard, the proposed tour of Arnos Vale with accompanying fiction, was limited to the Anglican chapel that crowns the cemetery’s hill.
The austerity of the building combined with candlelight shadows was the perfect gothic setting for our readings of the macabre and the horrible. And with an added soundman, Rich Jeffery, there maybe an audio book of the event in the future.
Among the North Bristol Writers that took part were:
Pete Sutton, Maria Herring who was reading a story by Kevlin Henney, Chrissey Harrison, Justin Newland, Clare Dornan, Jay Millington, Ian Millsted, and Piotr Sweitlik,
With the poet B Adriaens reading my contribution this ghoulish evening was concluded.
With thanks to the Arnos Vale staff – great coffee, by the way – and, of course, our audience – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Look out for the Tales From The Graveyard print anthology in 2018
