Stop! Think before you eat that biscuit! Is it in any way fancy? If so, then you are a criminal!
London, 1948 – The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such as the Gypsy Cream. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to “shake confectionery to its very foundations,” his world – and the ministry – are turned upside down.
Ghost Stories for Christmas
16th-17th December 2017 @ 8:00PM
The original Brighton "Ghost Stories for Christmas", now in its fifth year, returns to The Lantern for a night where storytelling meets theatre in a dalliance with the macabre.
We are honoured to announce that this year's production features stories by two of the undisputed masters of the genre Ramsey Campbell and Stephen King, as well as a terrifying tale from up and coming talent John Paul Fitch and, of course, a classic from the father of the modern ghost story M.R. James.
