Storyteller returns to Belper


A favourite at No.28 in Belper, storyteller and dramatist Marty Ross returns with his latest show, a Victorian ghost story for Christmas in the great tradition of creepy tales by the festive fireside.

In this latest dramatic show from the man dubbed by BBC Scotland “the Glaswegian master of radio horror” and by Broadway Baby as “a master craftsman who never turns down the pressure”.

A young woman homeless in the streets of Victorian Glasgow is offered an act of charity by a lonely Minister of the Kirk – a chance to stay in his grand home for the Christmas season. But there is more to this kind offer than meets the eye as dark secrets emerge from the surrounding snowy landscape.

Those who have attended Ross’ previous shows will know that this is not storytelling of the “chatty anecdote” school, but full blown theatrical drama, thrilling and visceral. It’s not for the easily unnerved. The show can be seen on December 16 at 7.30pm. For tickets go to
