This Ghostly Poetry Walk with Mark Pajak is a special commission for the Leeds Library's 250th Anniversary and the Museums at Night Festival. The Leeds Library, one of the most haunted buildings in Yorkshire, invites you to discover the supernatural side of Leeds with stories paired with chilling poetry courtesy of your host for the evening, award winning poet Mark Pajak [https://twitter.com/mark_pajak].

The tour of landmarks of historic Leeds and their macabre folklore and history will be matched by poetry bringing the history of Leeds from years gone by to life.

The walk will take place each night from Wednesday 24 Oct - Sat 27 Oct, 8.00-9.15pm. Full priced tickets are £10/ £8 for Leeds Library members.

Dress warmly and bring a torch. The tour will begin at the Library (on Commercial St NOT Central Library), the home of Thomas Sternberg its resident spirit, a previous Librarian of the Library in the late 19th century. The walk will take place regardless of the weather. Don't miss one of the highlights of the Leeds Library's 250th anniversary year.
