The sold-out Secret Storytelling event at this year’s Birmingham Literature Festival was wonderful…
The venue was The Roundhouse – an old industrial building on the canals in Birmingham city centre. It used to be where the barge horses were stabled; now it is being renovated by the National Trust. It was a perfect place to tell ghost stories! Fabulously atmospheric and without electricity, so we finished the show in near darkness.
I was joined for the performance by four participants from a workshop I had led earlier in the week: How to Tell a Great Ghost Story.
Thanks to Lee Allen for the great picture of me!
