Cold Bath Street Book Launch Ghost Cruise


This is a free event - tickets available on the night on a first come, first served basis!

Join us as we welcome New York Times bestselling author AJ Hartley who will discuss the astonishing publishing phenomenon that is "Cold Bath Street", a ghost thriller set in Northern England.  AJ Hartley has written books with Blink 182's Tom de Longe which have won him international acclaim along with many major awards including the SIBA Book Award and the Kirkus award for best teen book. He is currently Amazon and Audible Number One and Number One in the Waterstones charts for Northern England.
This one-off, 2 hour cruise will feature for the first hour two of York Dungeon's spirtual characters, Yorkshire prophetess Old Mother Shipton and Roman soothsayer Tiberius Fabius Bibulus as they gaze into York’s dark past, and shed light on some of York’s most infamous ghost stories. As you sail along the river, things will take a turn to the paranormal as you learn more about 11 of the city’s spectral sightings on this unique book launch.
For the second hour, A J Hartley will then discuss his incredible new book, whilst there will be an opportunity to meet the author and have copies of the book signed.
"Preston Oldcorn is in a desolate void between life and death. In order to save his soul he must brave his greatest fear - Cold Bath Street. A gothic thriller - think Hunger Games crossed with Artemis Fowl - that will keep you gripped to the end."
