A Scary Spectacular Christmas Show by Craig Johnson

Have yourself a scary little Christmas…. Brighton’s original Ghost Stories for Christmas returns to The Lantern Theatre, featuring a trio of spine tingling tales from masters of horror Ramsey Campbell and John Paul Fitch and, for the first time, award winning novelist Kate Mosse.

Following a break in 2020 due to ill health, director and producer Craig Johnson says ‘We are delighted to be back at The Lantern this year performing our annual show, which has been a staple of the Brighton Christmas Season since our first production 9 years ago. After a serious health scare in 2020 we are proud to be donating our proceeds from the show to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, without which I may have ended up quite literally in a ghost story. I am eternally grateful for the care I received from all of the staff there and so it feels fantastic to be giving something back, particularly following all of the efforts made by the NHS over the past two years.”

This year's show promises tales of horror, melancholy and dark humour and features a ghostly bride, malevolent decorations and a rather unusual Christmas miracle. Please note that this production, which contains strong language, is not suitable for children.

Because our audience capacity is now reduced, and we want to raise as much money as possible for the NHS, we will not be including mulled wine within this year's ticket.
