Blue Peter star Peter Duncan is in a Blackpool Grand première of ghost story When Darkness Falls, September 15–17.

The Olivier-nominated actor, whose theatre credits include Sebastian Faulks’s Birdsong, will star as John Blondel alongside Daniel Rainford, who most recently appeared in Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful at The Grand.

On a stormy night on the small island of Guernsey, a young paranormal expert joins a sceptical history teacher to record the first in a series of podcasts based on the island’s folklore.

As the expert regales his horrifying stories, the teacher learns that we all have our own story.
