The Kings Arms is hosting a full on Day of Theatrical Horror tomorrow with Stage Fright, running from 1pm to 10pm, in a rather scary run up to Halloween...

The day, which is punctuated with talks, screenings, performances and even an evil quiz, is headlined by two highly acclaimed spooky plays, Joe O'Byrne's The Haunting of Blaine Manor at 8pm (see Salford Star preview click here) and Daniel Thackeray's The Dead, Live, at 2pm, a 'postmodern ghost story' recently seen at the GM Fringe and London Horror Festivals.

Throughout the event, Mallinson's Mausoleum will be situated in the snug with a unique collection of horror stuff, including Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee artwork, created especially for Stage Fright by Brian Gorman.

The full line-up is...

12:30pm-1pm THEY WILL NOT REST (The Snug)
A full-cast reading of the acclaimed, rarely-seen stage adaptation by playwright Ross Kelly of the nightmarishly imaginative short story by award-winning Yorkshire horror author Simon Clark, performed with the special permission of the author.  Followed by a short Q&A with the cast and director.
