How to Tell a Ghost Story (and why we tell them)

BOO! Join us round the campfire with Dr Sebastian Rasinger of ARU and Insitu Theatre actor Richard Spraul as we explore the power that ghost stories have over us. Why are we compelled to gather round campfires - and why, when we’re there, do we have a tendency to tell tales that frighten us? And, hey, how do you tell a fully gripping Ghost Story? One that leaves hairs standing on end? Richard will perform a few harrowing tales and then coach you through how to weave a scary yarn yourself.
