Shadowy Tales & Strange Stories
Have you seen a ghost or do you live in a haunted house?
Have ghostly goings-on or phantom folktales about Kirkham been passed down through your family?
Gather around the virtual campfire to share your spooky stories at a special evening event held on Tuesday 26th October at 7:00pm. Hosted on Zoom by Northwest based artists Liz Chapman and Dustin Lyon. The artists are hoping to use these stories in an exciting art installation at the heart of Kirkham later on in the year. This workshop is aimed at adults but families are also welcome.
