• What more could you ask for from a single hour? …a bit different from your normal Lit Fest fare.   Whether you learned something about Dickens or took away some of the salient facts from the ‘street’ version of the writer, there was something for everyone… fun, informative and above all, good for a laugh.

Hallowe’en storytelling in Penryn and Falmouth

This is what Scary Little Girls does best!

Intimate, unique events which lift the veil on your home town

SLG has been casting Hallowe’en spells since its very beginnings, spooking and entertaining audiences with insane cabaret on a London canal barge; tricking and treating in Cornwall; bringing Sweet Witchery to Oxford – but above all, telling stories.

On Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th October, we are teaming up once again with fellow Cornish theatricals Trifle Gathering to uncover the dark secrets of Penryn. Starting from the train station, our performative treasure hunt A Scary Little Gathering will take you through the town’s hearths and homes, bringing Hallowe’en back from the dead…

With exclusive new terrifying tales by Pauline Sheppard, LH Trevail and Kate Kerrow, this will be a unique set of performances.

“A fab combination of performance and history” – Lynn Gardner, The Guardian

And on Hallowe’en night itself, come to the fabulous Pea Souk restaurant in Falmouth for A Hallowe’en Banquet: a sumptuous three course meal accompanied by seasonally spooky storytelling and songs.  Space is limited so advance booking is essential!
