30.10.16 – Day of the Dead IV – SHHHH!

Once every year around Halloween, a group of unruly reprobates gather at The Square Tower in Old Portsmouth to frighten, taunt and petrify an audience of unsuspecting Pomepy punters. This year is no different, so if you want to step out of your skin, bring along your bones and tap into your dark side, we’ll do our utmost to entertain the hell out of you!

This year, I’ll be introducing a new character of mine and reading a short story from the tales of – ‘Black’ MacTavish – Supernatural Crime Scene Cleaner.

See Press for details…or look at the poster above, the choice is yours…but make it whilst you still have time…before YOU DIE! Too much? Yeah, thought so…pop along if you fancy it…that’s a bit better isn’t it..

*This year Day of the Dead is part of Darkfest and with lots of tricks and treats crammed into a packed programme have yourself a quick peek and see which event tickles your bones…



Portsmouth Fairy Tales – Book Launch & Readings


Once Upon a Time… Tom decided to keep a blog post short… no, honestly, he did…
So, following on from the earlier workshops, the authors of Portsmouth Fairy Tales will be reading extracts from their stories, moi included.
If you can get along that would be amazing to see you there – please find details of this event below… or ask The Pale Man on the door for directions. He’s on loan from Pan’s Labyrinth… and don’t try to sneak any kids in, he’s got a tremendous appetite and eyes in the back…er front… of his… hands!!! (Very brave and heroic children who slay and defeat this evil creature on the door may pass free of charge, but don’t use magic… not in front of grown ups.)
The Pale Man - Pan's Labyrinth
Evening Event:
Leave the kids at home and join us for an evening of dark, twisted and delicious fairy tales. All freshly-written, all set in Pompey’s alleys, buildings and beaches.
Sit back with a drink, while 11 authors – including the amazing Tom Harris, who juggles fire whilst he reads – reveal their tangled tales.
