Grayston Voices Presents Spooky Tales For Halloween

On Tuesday 24 October the last of local historian David Glover’s Grayston Voices talks for 2017 is specially chosen for the Halloween period. David’s talks usually sell out so advance tickets (£3) are recommended. He will be giving the talk at The Grayston Unity (by the Town Hall) at 7.30pm and 9pm.

 

Spooky Tales for Hallowe’en
David tells the story of how a curse on a Halifax pedlar helped convict a “Pendle Witch” in 1612; the 18th Century tale of Mrs Haigh of Shaw Hill, almost buried alive in Halifax Parish Church around 1770; and the apparent contemporary cases of human combustion involving sisters less than a mile apart, near Sowerby Bridge in 1899. David will also describe two non-local ancestral curses – The Headless Horseman of Chavenage, and the Monk’s Curse of Cowdray.
