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.

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.
