Rattle some bones and spook the senses
The KSP Writers' Centre is holding a Spooky Stories night in August to help raise funds for its 2016 Writer-in-Residence program, for which funding was recently cut by the state government.
The family-friendly event will feature a bonfire, marshmallow toasting, hearty soup, fresh rolls, hot chocolate and award-winning stories from KSP's 2016 Ghost Story Competition.
Being run in the heritage-listed haunted house of the KSP Writers' Centre, this event is sure to rattle some bones and spook the senses.
If you've never visited the Greenmount Centre before, this is a great opportunity to view one of the hills' community's most significant historic buildings, and be entertained by local author performances. The ghosts of Katharine Susannah Prichard and Hugo Throssell VC – who both died on the property – may just pop in to enjoy the night!
