Ewen Macintosh

Ewan Mcintosh

We’re very pleased to announce that Ewen Macintosh has joined the bill for our Ghost Stories event. Ewen has just finished working with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant on LIFE’S TOO SHORT for BBC and HBO.

He is probably still best known for playing Keith in The Office, which he did for two series and Christmas Specials. Well loved across the comedy network, Ewen regularly pops up in the classics (Lead Balloon, Little Britain, Miranda etc) and has a couple of Films on the go (The brilliant Scouting Book for Boys with Thomas Turgoose, and currently Bulla with his mate Rufus Hound)

Ewen is also a resident writer at Talkback Thames with Navelgazing. Current projects include ‘ToyBoize’ about a boy band who reform after 19 years, out of shape and fashion but willing to give it another go…

The Bookhouse Boys

The Bookhouse Boys

We’re very happy to confirm that The Bookhouse Boys will be supplying some outstanding musical entertainment to wrap up our Ghost Stories event on 27th October. They were named after the secret society in Twin Peaks with a sound that has been described by the independent as a “dark and beguiling maelstrom of orchestral pop, flamenco folk and spaghetti-western twang”, so they’re an amazingly good fit with our spooky theme. Their album ‘Tales to be told’ is available on in all good record stores now.

Sarah Bennetto

Sarah Bennetto is a stand-up comic from Melbourne, Australia, now living and performing in the UK. She has performed on stage, radio and television as a stand-up comic and presenter, and is responsible for experimental comedy collective Storytellers’ Club. This monthly club is a haven for literate, friendly, lo-fi comedy - which has since transferred to great acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe.

"the undeniable star of the show is the scintillating storyteller who is our hostess, narrator and raconteur, Sarah Bennetto. Her stories and anecdotes are particularly funny (ask her about the time her father tried to pimp her for some more land)." - Broadway Baby

"Her amusing anecdotes highlighted the importance of locking toilet doors, and why quiche and misogyny are inextricably linked." - Three Weeks

Miriam Elia

Miriam Elia (born in a nice part of London, 1982) is a Sony nominated Comedian and Visual artist.
