Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you’ll find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first, you won’t want to leave. Later, you’ll find that you can’t…Mixing genre as ever, David Mitchell has produced a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story—as only he could imagine it. Better still, some of the action is set in Ely! David Mitchell enthralled us all when he visited last year – this is a unique and unmissable event.

“Plants died, milk curdled, and my children went slightly feral as I succumbed to the creepy magic of David Mitchell’s Slade House. It’s a wildly inventive, chilling, and—for all its otherworldliness—wonderfully human haunted house story. I plan to return to its clutches quite often.”— Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl
