People who have saved this event:


‘Tales in Sombre Tones’ is a collaborative project between British artist Karen Ruffles and American author Sean Walter.


To celebrate the publication of their illustrated anthology of gothic horror stories, they are putting on a fully immersive touring show to bring the audience inside the stories to experience the wonder and the horror for themselves. In addition to the twenty-four original illustrations, the show features live readings with sign language interpretation, 3D versions of the artwork for people to touch, and stop-motion animated sequences using Ruffles’ desk models to ‘show what it’s like living with monsters’. The result is an inclusive, entertaining event designed to ensure the audience have as much fun as the pair did creating it all.

On Friday 10 May, 6-10pm, there will be an evening of readings by Sean Walter and other entertainment in the gallery.
