Tickets are now on sale for our spooky story night, featuring Sarah Pinborough, James Moran, Neil Jones, Kevin McNally and many, many more.

UPDATE: This event is now SOLD OUT. Many thanks for your support - sadly, there will be no tickets on the door.

After weeks of careful planning, we're finally ready to announce our brand newstorytelling event: Den of Eek!, A Night of Spooky Stories! We've got an amazing bunch of people coming along to tell you short stories guaranteed to creep you out. And it's all for a good cause. Here's the line-up:

Sarah Pinborough is a novelist and screenwriter. She’s written several horror novels, including the Dog-Faced Gods series, as well as two Torchwood spin-offs. She recently wrote an episode of BBC police drama New Tricks, and her first novel, The Hidden, is currently being adapted into a film.

James Moran is a screenwriter – he’s the man responsible for Cockneys vs Zombies, Tower Block, and Severance, as well as episodes of Torchwood, Doctor Who, Primeval, Spooks, and Crusoe. His next project is another horror comedy, Silent Night of the Living Dead.

Johannes Roberts is a writer/director, specialising in the horror genre. His most recent movie was Storage 24, a sci-fi horror starring Noel Clarke; his other credits include Roadkill (aka “The Giant Bird Movie”) and the intensely creepy F.

Leila Johnston is the Managing Editor of The Literary Platform, which showcases projects combining  literature with technology. She’s written a sci-fi book and a joke book, and is currently working on a romantic puppet musical about the Minotaur and a woman who emits a toxic forcefield.

CJ Lines is a writer whose last book, Cold Mirrors, was a collection of macabre short stories. He’s also published a horror novel, Filth Kiss, and is working on a novel about angels and pop music. His screenplay about a secret vampire-hunting society is currently in development.

Neil Jones is a screenwriter. He’s one of the creators of Bedlam, Sky Living’s spooky series about a former-asylum-turned-haunted-apartment-block, and he’s also written for Hollyoaks, The Bill, Blue Murder, and the Nickelodeon mystery drama House of Anubis.

Mary Hamilton is a journalist, games designer, and professional zombie wrangler. She currently works as one of the world's fastest pedants at The Guardian, and runs portable zombie apocalypses in the form of the live-action survival horror game Zombie LARP.

Clayton Littlewood is a writer and playwright. His blog about the darker side of Soho was by turns funny, heartbreaking, and downright bizarre; to date, it’s been turned into a newspaper column, two books (Dirty White Boy and Goodbye To Soho) and a play.

Kevin McNally is a seasoned actor who’s appeared in everything from Doctor Who to Downton Abbey; from Midsomer Murders to all four of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. His first film role was in The Spy Who Loved Me, and he’s also worked extensively in radio and theatre over the years.

Sounds great but the only problem is... I have entered the short story competition so not sure whether to buy a ticket or not - just in case I win a slot!!

Sounds great, but can I just check: is there any danger of audience participation? I'm serious. I went to a sort of 'spooky performance night' last year and all was going well until the performers started moving amongst the audience and some poor bastard got dragged up on stage. I know it's supposed to be scary, but the gut-wrenching nausea of being forced to partake in the dissolution of theatre boundaries is a different matter.

What a fantastic line-up and rather cheaply too! Good to see this supporting the appeal.

I'd love to come but I have to work every day in November and December. Damn you Santa !

meh its £5.95 and its for charity... If you win a ticket then just give it away for free or something! I've bought 2 tickets and i have no idea if i can make it or even if i have anyone interested in going yet but the smug superiority i get has already made it worth while!

Good thinking!

Nobody will be forced to join in like that, no. It's not that kind of night!

Thanks for that, very glad to hear it. Tickets bought, cancer fought.
