As part of centenary celebrations for author Robert Aickman’s work the Museum of Bath at Work is presenting three of his most famous short stories.
Robert Aickman is widely regarded as England’s most accomplished writer of the supernatural in the 20th century.
He was also an active conservationist, environmentalist and campaigner for the preservation of the inland waterways. The preservation of the Kennet and Avon Canal – in which he took special interest and visited regularly in the 1950s- would not have been possible without his efforts.
The three stories are being presented by the Halfpenny Theatre Company at The Museum of Bath at Work on the evening of November 14th and will begin at 7.30 p.m.
In addition to the storytelling there will also be sound and image projections by the Bath Sound and Light Workshop. Admission is free as the Workshop is sponsoring the event although donations are welcome.
The short stories to be read are ‘The Hospice’, and ‘Wood’ .
If Hallow’een has whetted your appetite for the supernatural and you have an interest in ‘grown up’ tales then come along to the Museum of Bath at Work for an evening of chilling literature.
