“In Skriker’s Footsteps” is a bold multi-media storytelling piece that uses projection, animation, sound and live storytelling to tell both old and new Lancashire tales.

Jacqueline Harris performs her own sharply dramatic retellings of the old stories. Strange creatures and figures blaze into life. Marjan Wouda’s Skrikers, white dobbies and spectral cats stalk the walls. Woven through this performance are contemporary voices telling first hand accounts of ghostly encounters across Lancashire.


jah3Storyteller and writer Jacqueline Harris and sculptor Marjan Wouda have collaborated with theatre projectionist Adam York Gregory to bring you a storytelling experience like no other, its roots in the people and landscape of Lancashire.
