Arnos Vale Cemetery Bristol hosts Tales from the Graveyard

Posted on: 08 Sep 2017

A spine-tingling selection of local scribes will be regaling their tales of the terrifying and macabre when Arnos Vale Cemetery on the Bath Road in Bristol holds its ghoulish Tales from the Graveyard gig on Thursday 19th October 2017.

In the run-up to Halloween, some of the region's finest writers will be using the cemetery location as inspiration to lift the coffin lid on a series of spooky stories. Last year's event was a sell-out and expectations are blood-curdling high that this one will be just as popular.


The creepy chronicles have been written by those top literary bods which form the North Bristol Writers collective, who have performed at high-profile events such as Farmfest, Sanctum and a whole raft of other Bristol-based shindigs. The group is comprised of some of the finest creative, literary talent in the South West and members have been published in a variety of prestigious publications, as well as being nominated for notable accolades such as the British Fantasy Awards.

Tickets are a scream at a mere £8 ensuring that, though the cost might be low, the fear factor quotient will be reassuringly and goosebump-inducingly high. The event runs from 7pm - 9.30pm. 


It should be noted that the very nature of Arnos Vale means it's not a fully accessible site due to its slopes, steps and uneven paths, and sensible shoes and warm clothing are strongly recommended. You can park on the site and Blue Badge holders can reserve a space by emailing 


Prod your ghoulish, bony digit on the event's Facebook page and you can find out more about this and other events at Arnos Vale here.

Arnos Vale Cemetery is located at Bath Road, Bristol, BS4 3EW
