Murder Foretold – Chapel Arts Creative Writing Group presents stories to die for! 

Chapel Arts Creative Writing Group from Chapel-en-le-Frith in the High Peak has used the prompt “Someone here will soon commit a murder” for its spoken word show at this year’s Buxton Fringe (July 3rd to 21st).


The thriving group of writers will be presenting two shows entitled Murder Foretold, an evening performance on July 11th at 7.30pm and a matinee on July 14th at 2pm. Different material is likely to feature at each and the group is expecting to perform stories, poetry, mini-plays and even some music, all with a different slant on this year’s murderous theme.


Led by author Mark Henderson, the group is open to all but includes published writers among its ranks. A booklet of short stories, Murder Foretold, will be on sale at the Fringe events. The group has also had its monologues performed by Glossop’s Partington Players and three writers from the group have had monologues selected by Strajanka Productions for another Buxton Fringe event, The Monologue Project 2024.


Says Mark: It’s a pleasure and a privilege to work with this talented group of writers. They’ve produced a wide variety of pieces around this year’s theme. Having heard what they’re offering, I’m glad I don’t have to walk home along a dark alley!


A registered charity, Chapel Arts was formed to encourage the development of a broad range of arts in the Chapel-en-le-Frith area. Details of events, including regular spoken word performances, are available on The site also includes the Writing Group’s past filmed and recorded readings will be updated with transcripts from this year’s live performances.
