MEET YOUR DOOM is a one-to-one spoken word experience which combines tarot cards and poetic storytelling to blend of horror with humour. Ever been told that when you get a tarot reading, the Death card doesn’t really mean death? Well, in the Meet Your Doom deck it does. Every card does. They all mean death. Your death. Maybe everyone’s death. Your grim, grisly demise, lovingly and light-heartedly predicted by your personal prognosticator.
On the night, Jen will be wandering the site foretelling the deaths of whoever crosses her path and wants to know. She’ll be recognisable by the fact that she’ll (probably) be the only person there in deep mourning. Oh, and she’ll have a sign.
Seek her out at these times:
18:10 – 18:40
19:05 – 19:35
