We came, we saw… we told some ghost stories and took some photos!
This time out our venue was the fantastic National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, and with Halloween looming it was the perfect time for a paranormal party.
What happened at Ghosts of Wales – Live! this year?
Once again, it was a great chance for like-minded people to get together and enjoy an hour or so of eerie entertainments.
The key thing about these events is to have fun – despite the subject matter, we don’t anyone to leave terrified! – and that’s exactly what happened.
which included real-life tales from haunted Wales, creepy yards from the days of folklore, handy tips on how to ethically conduct a paranormal investigation, a sneak preview from a new theatrical spine-chiller, and of course – spooky belly dancing!
Who was there?
The line up included:
• The “ghost host” himself Mark Rees (of course!) with some spine-chilling accounts of real-life ghost stories from across Wales.
• Legendary storyteller Owen Staton, who recalled some magical tales from the time between times.
• The incredible Lotus Sisters, who wowed the crowd with some folkloric belly dancing (yes, folkloric belly dancing!).
•Welsh paranormal investigators Cymru Paranormal, who gave a quick talk on how to hunt ghosts responsibly.
•And making his Ghosts of Wales Live debut, Welsh playwright Owen Thomas, who gave an exclusive preview of his upcoming creepy new play The Night Porter.
When’s the next one?
Ghosts of Wales – Live! has now become an annual event, and will return each and every October for Halloween.
Keep an eye on the events page for future dates, as well as all other talks and appearances.
Until then, a HUGE thank you everyone who made a success of this year’s get-together.
It’s wonderful to see so many people returning time and time again, and it’s just as wonderful to see so many new new faces joining the Ghosts of Wales family for the first time.
And none of it would be possible without the performers, who all gave up their time to make this event a success.
See you all again at the next Ghosts of Wales – Live!
