The National Maritime Museum will be hosting an after-hours storytelling event for adults.

You'll be treated to a free cocktail before being led around the galleries by torchlight, meeting a wide-variety of storytellers along the way... there'll be one using signsong, another one in drag, one telling ghost stories, gothic horror, and even a bit of Caribbean folklore!

Expect plenty of thrills and chills and prepare to have your ideas about storytelling turned on their head.
