Behind the Screams

Last night Cathedral House hosted an unusual event as part of 'Lancaster Unlocked', which is taking place across the city this weekend. 'Behind the Screams' was a chance for locals and visitors to hear some Victorian horror stories read in the atmospheric surroundings of the Cathedral library.

The event was so popular there were two sittings. Stories included works by Charles Dickens, M. R. James and Catholic writer (and priest) Monsignor R. H. Benson. From outside it looked the part...

...and inside the stories came to life in the hands of Cathedral parishioners.

But who would live in a house like this?
