Description

Winter Ghosts

Where better to spend an engaging winter's evening in the company of the Folk Horror Revival group, than in the beautiful coastal town of Whitby. This event promises to be one of the highlights of the wyrd calendar, and is most definitely not to be missed.

In the intimate setting of The Metropole, Whitby, we cordially invite you to join us for our winter soiree, a gathering of the clans on the North Yorkshire coast. Folk Horror Revival present a series of exhilarating talks and musical performances for your terpsichorean pleasure.

Beginning at 4pm, the event gets under way with a series of thought provoking oratories with a distinctly local flavour, before we plunge headlong into an evening programme of esoteric, auditory treats for the soul.

Talks:

George Cromack - Coastal Terrors

Elaine Edmunds - The Tell Tale Art

Bob Fischer - A Story To Shiver To

Followed by - The Flash Company's Mummer's Play

Live Music:

The Equestrian Vortex featuring Melmoth the Wanderer

The Soulless Party featuring Chris Lambert

Leasungspell

Inkubus Sukkubus
