THE TRAVELLING VAMPIRE SHOW The Travelling Vampire Show is coming to town and Dwight, Rusty and Slim are determined to go. But it's for over 18s only, there's a steep admission fee and the show starts at midnight, way past their curfew. They decide to go and watch the crew set up anyway, hoping to catch a glimpse of Valeria, billed as 'the only known vampire in captivity'. But when the three teenagers break the rules, they run into big trouble.

But the deafening music from next door is not helping. He furiously bangs on his neighbour's door and discover's she's a twenty-two-year-old woman who will not be argued with. Shane is about to find out that life really can imitate art.
