This December, we return to The Castle Hotel in Manchester, celebrating the Winter Solstice with an sonic exploration of the year’s longest, darkest night. From the Arctic’s months-long winter darkness to the long dark night of the soul, we’ll explore the colours of darkness. What can our minds cleave to, when loneliness creeps in and the light seeps away? And what’s really in those inky shadows?
We’re proud to present a selection of our favourite tales of the darkest night and the world beyond the light, from the world’s most innovative radio producers.
Join us, raise a glass, and we’ll get through this year’s longest night together.
WHEN Sunday 21st December 2014 7.30pm
WHERE The Castle Hotel, 66 Oldham St, Manchester M4 1LE
TICKETS £3 on the door
