Twisted Tales

Twisted Tales aims to promote the very best of 21st century horror across a range of different media, from live events to critical reviews.

I set up Twisted Tales in 2010 initially as a one-off Halloween event however after a sell-out audience of 65 people it didn't take much encouragement for me to realise that the format could run all year round with the help of co-founder David McWilliam. It continues to impress me how many people have taken the series into their hearts and the fantastic support we've encountered from the horror community.
