SSS at Cheltenham LitFest 10 October 2016


Watch our sell-out special fifth birthday event in the Little Big Top at the October 2016 Cheltenham Literature Festival. In fact you can choose which story or stories to enjoy. 

The sound quality is much better than for the Eerie Evening event in 2015. Many thanks indeed to historical novelist David Penny who videoed the evening.
