Want to see a different kind of festive show? Join us for a big Christmas night out with the spine-tingling, laugh-out-loud story of The Canterville Ghost, superbly adapted by the acclaimed Tall Stories, the master purveyors of a tale well told.

Combining theatre, music, magic and comedy in a delicious tribute to Victorian music hall, this is a cheeky and charming alternative to pantomime with an affectionate nostalgia for the classic variety shows of the past.

Oscar Wilde’s gruesome comic ghost story is reimagined by an extraordinary company of vaudevillian performers, featuring magical illusions to take your breath away, a ventriloquist to make you howl with laughter, and a psychic who calls up spirits from another realm. But as we delve into the mysterious lives of the performers, things aren’t all they seem to be…

Bring along family and friends for a wondrously entertaining festive treat!

“Tall Stories have managed to abridge a tale not only with mirth, they’ve shown up most of the other acts at the Fringe by proving they can pull out every trick conceivable” ★★★★ The Skinny

“Pithy and poignant, exceedingly clever and quite simply a delight” ★★★★★ The 730 Review

“Inventive, delightful and hilarious” ★★★★ The Scotsman
