Mermedusa by Thomas Taylor
It is midwinter once again, and the hosts of a paranormal podcast have descended on Eerie-on-Sea eager for a sighting of the legendary malamander. Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, is feeling uneasy – and not just because of the visitors. He’s plagued by unsettling dreams, and the head-splitting “Eerie Hum” that is reverberating through the town.

Something is dreadfully wrong, and it seems to be emanating from Eerie's very core. Herbie and his friend Violet Parma will need all their courage as they head deep below the town to seek answers. Perhaps here, finally, they – and the malamander too – will discover the Deepest Secret of Eerie-on-Sea.

Fri 27 Oct: Under 10s family friendly ghost trail and stories: 4pm-5pm
