A Night of Ghosts is a full two-act show of seance magic and Ghostbusters-inspired comedy.

by Noisy Ghost Entertainment in Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Hi folks, 

We're Ash & Des, stage performers. Ash is a magician and Des is a comedian and we're doing a show together. It's fun, people like it. It's super spooky and super nerdy too.

It's called "A Night of Ghosts" and we're staging it this summer in Glasgow, Leicester, Matlock Bath, Sheffield, and Newcastle. We're doing it in August 2024, and we're looking for supporters and those interested in the arts, magic, comedy, ghosts and Ghostbusting, to help us out. 

A Night of Ghosts is a two act, full show. The first act features seance magic from Ash Pryce. His shows have packed venues across the country, with supernatural themed illusions and mind reading. The second act is a comedy tribute show to the Ghostbusters by Des O'Gorman. One man's personal tale of a team of paranormal exterminators that molded his life. You can read the full show blurbs at the end to get a fuller idea of the show you'll be supporting. 

But what does supporting us do? 

  • You'd be contributing to the arts - Like everybody, the creative industries are struggling right now, funding from official bodies is nearly impossible to get. A small donation from you would be helping to support the arts directly, and have a positive impact on the entertainment world. 
  • Helps ensure we can keep ticket prices lower- raising the full amount through this crowdfunder would allow us to introduce an extra ticket tier for lower incomes. 
  • Some of our team are disabled and staging any event can be difficult. Raising some of the money for the costs of the tour via supporters means less limited energy expended in other, more health impactful, ways. 

We know everyone is struggling right now, honestly we understand - we wouldn't be setting up this crowdfunding page if we weren't feeling the pinch too! We're not in this for huge personal gain - if we can cover our costs and earn a fair amount from staging the shows that's all we want. 

The amount we're requesting from the Crowdfunder is only part of the overall costs - we're using our own money to self-fund as much as possible because we don't want to be reliant on supporters for the entire amount, not with how the world is right now!

And if you can't donate that's understandable, just share this crowdfunder or tell people about the show if they live near one of the venues. 

But if you can donate, no matter the amount, it would help so very much. 

Thanks for having a look at the fundraiser!

Show blurbs: 

"A Night of Ghosts" is an interactive night of spooky entertainment. Created by Des O'Gorman [The Ghostbusters of Scotland, Comic Con Host] and Ash Pryce [Co-founder Edinburgh Horror Festival]. 

 

Act 1: Ash Pryce - Ghosts 

Step into the psychic's parlour for an experience with the supernatural, the paranormal, and things that go BUMP in the night as you take part in a series of mind-twisting demonstrations drawing on psychic superpowers, spirit communication and the Victorian Seance. A unique, unsettling, and immersive magic show from the Master of the Magical Macabre.  

 

Act 2: Des O'Gorman - Still Ready to Believe You 

This show is a love letter to nostalgia, geeks, and childhood- whether you've seen the movies or not. Des presents the latest version of his one-man Ghostbusters tribute show. Fun, funny and moving, he talks about everything Ghostbusters and how growing up a GB fan has its up and downs. Covering the movies, comics, cartoons, toys and the newest installment, Ghostbusters Frozen Empire. For anyone who knows who to call!
