The Halifax Ghost Story Festival - 29th - 31st October 2010

We arrived back home earlier tonight after one of the best weekends we've spent away for ages. The Halifax Ghost Story Festival was a tremendous success and credit must be given to those who organised and took part in it. Tomorrow Lin and I will give a report on it. In the meantime, here are a few photos:

  1. That looks an amazing festival, especially Dyson reading Aickman. I'm reading 'Cold Hand in Mine' at the moment for the first time. Look forward to the report.
