Ghost Writers on the Cam

Few towns have bred so many first rate writers of supernatural tales as Cambridge. Yet many of these master storytellers are forgotten today. Ghost Writers on the Cam seeks to revive some reputations. It is a walking tour of Cambridge that revisits some of the stories, haunts and lives of these imaginative souls. Breathes new life into old tales. Puts some flesh back onto mouldering literary bones.

Hear the juvenilia of Aleister Crowley. Meet Gerald Heard, the advocate of ‘Super-Shock.’ And find out who ‘occasionally sins by crossing the line of legitimate horridness…’

Ghost Writers on the Cam has been developed, and is led, by storyteller and art historian Robert Lloyd Parry.

“Robert was a captivating tour guide and his knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject really comes through.
It gave me a new sense of Cambridge...”
