Haunted Birmingham

Write a spooky story set somehwere in Birmingham (1)

What better way to set the mood on these dark autumn and winter nights than our nail-biting, spine-chilling call-to-action campaign: Haunted Birmingham!

Haunted Birmingham is all about celebrating scary stories based in Birmingham. The campaign, in partnership with the University of Birmingham, encourages people to write scary stories that are set in our wonderful, but oftentimes spooky city. These stories will be shared across our social media channels (with your permission) alongside stories from professional writers such as Dr Jimmy Packham, who specialises in the West Midlands gothic. The campaign will then culminate in a celebratory exhibition in December to share some of the spooky entries.

Are you brave enough? Our call-to-action ask

Haunted Birmingham will not be possible without you! We know there are a plethora of untapped scary stories just waiting to be shuddered at and we want your help to write them. Join us, get creative, interview your friends and family for some spine-tingling inspiration and let’s put the city on the map of all things frightening!
