Upcoming Events


The Haunted Inn

The Haunted Inn Wednesday 9 November 7.30 – 9.30pm Cambridge’s favourite haunted inn is the perfect setting for Michael Dacre’s blood-curdling, laugh-out-loud, mind-boggling performance based on The Sargossa Manuscript and nicely chilled by Stephen Yates’ eerie music. In association with Cambridge Storytellers. Click the title for ticket prices and booking details
