Join us at Denman for a first! Enjoy illustrated ghost tales with actor and tour guide, Bill Spectre. One of the tales Bill will tell is The Monkey’s Paw, a supernatural short story from 1902, as well as a few Oxfordshire stories from his local ghost tours. Be prepared for some spooky stories and getting involved with props and audience contributions!

Bill trained as an actor at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. His varied career has taken him from Dundee Rep to The Young Vic in London, where he created the stage role of Skipper in The Brylcreem Boys by Peter Durrant.

His TV work includes Paradise Postponed by John Mortimer, The Sea Green Man, Girls on Top (with Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Ruby Wax), and Noel Coward's Star Quality, with Susannah York, Ian Richardson, Amanda Donahoe and Pam Ferris.
