British and Irish writers have created some of the most loved and revered horror tales ever known. From Dracula to Frankenstein to the ghost stories of MR James and Charles Dickens, our books are spooky. Here we cover the classics all the way to the modern day with interviews with authors and profiles of new books.
Here’s a fun film based on Robbie Burns’ spooky Scottish tale of Tam O’Shanter. It was made by Tom Cross Animation with Year Five school children from Southwark in London. The animation has been performed at the Barbican, The Queen Elizabeth Hall Southbank Centre and the Festival Hall. Each time accompanied by London Philharmonic Orchestra.
