Event description

Description

Change to the original planned programme - Unfortunately, recent events have meant that Samra Said is unable to participate in the evening and the advertised programme can't go ahead. Vanessa Woolf will now be telling the story of the demon Okurri Borokku who stole the paths: an eerie and powerful folktale which originated in the Caribbean.
