OCTOBER 2018

Take-off

The thrilling work of multi-million-selling

author Peter James returns to theatres

in January with the world-premiere

production of the spine-tingling stage play

The House on Cold Hill

, adapted from his

best-selling 2015 novel, based on his own

experience living in a haunted house.

This is the story of the Harcourt family,

who move into the house of their dreams;

an old, dilapidated Georgian mansion in

the remote Sussex countryside. However,

their dream home quickly turns into the

stuff of nightmares as they begin to realise

they aren’t the only residents at Cold Hill...

Peter James said: “

The House On Cold

Hill

was inspired by a seriously-haunted

house, a few miles from Brighton, that

my former wife and I lived in during the

1990s. It was a manor house on the site of

a former monastery, and a Roman villa

before that. When we bought it the owner

said, ‘You’ll like this with what you write – it

has three ghosts!’. He fibbed: it turned out

there were four! My mother-in-law saw an

Calling all lager lovers, IPA

aficionados, porter experts

and craft connoisseurs:

the Craft Beer Experience

is coming to Edinburgh

from 15th-17th November.

It promises to be a truly-

immersive beer event, taking

over all three floors of the

Assembly Roxy on Roxburgh

Place to bring you a taste

of the very best beers from

Scotland, the UK and Europe.

The Craft Beer Experience

will run for five sessions over

the three days with beers from

over 20 breweries for visitors

to taste, with some beers

appearing in Scottish taps for

the very first time. This event

isn’t just for the beer geeks

though, it’s for everyone who

has ever enjoyed a cold one at

the end of the day.

Scotland has a long history

of brewing beer, and the

Assembly’s Main Hall will be

a celebration of that 5,000-

year tradition, with food and

drink coming from some of

Scotland’s best producers.

After the huge success of

this year’s

40 Years Of Disco

tour, the line-up has been

announced for 2019 that once

more brings together disco

legends for this unique arena

concert. The legendary acts

confirmed to perform are

Village People, The Trammps,

Imagination featuring Leee

John, The Gibson Brothers, The

Three Degrees, The Real Thing

and, due to overwhelming

demand, Odyssey.

For over four decades

disco has ruled the charts and

dance floors, and is currently

stronger and more popular

than ever! The 40 Years of

Disco show is a high-energy,

hits-only live extravaganza

apparition on the day we moved in, and

the following day I saw weird, spectral

lights in the same location. An old chap

in the village told me he used to house-sit

for the previous owners, until one night a

woman in a grey silk crinoline, with a really

angry face, materialised out a wall, glided

towards him and stung his face with a flick

of the edge of her dress.

“We had constant strange occurrences,

and I can’t wait to see some of these

experiences come to life again on stage.”

The House on Cold Hill

opens at the

Orchard Theatre, Dartford, on 23rd-26th

January, followed by Nottingham (28th

January-2nd February); Shrewsbury

(4th-9th February); Malvern (18th-23rd

February); Brighton (4th -9th March;

London (8th-13th April); Milton Keynes

(15th-20th April); Woking (23rd-27th April);

Birmingham (6th-11th May); Manchester

(13th-18th May); and Glasgow (28th May-

1st June).
