Winter Ghosts – Important Information

With the Folk Horror Revival – Winter Ghosts event just days away. We felt it would make sense to post up some of the less exciting, but just as necessary information you will all  need when making decisions about what to see and when to eat. The following times are subject to change, especially for the Metropole event as much will depend on changeover between speakers/ bands.



For those making a weekend of it there are a couple of free associated events on Friday 15th December 2017.
At 5.30 pm at the Whitby Bookshop, 88 Church Street, author Chris Lambert will be giving readings from his Black Meadow and Wyrd Kalendar books.

Whilst at the Fleece Pub, also in Church Street from 9 pm local folk singers Rebecca Deniff and Mackie will be performing a selection of Murder Ballads.
(The Friday events are free entry but please feel free to pass a hat around for the performers )


On the morning of the Winter Ghosts event we are pleased to announce an Early Bird Book Reading event at Rusty Shears Cafe & Gin bar, 3 Silver Street from 11am to 1pm.

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, all topped off with a pair of films, both with a local flavour to them.

One final important message:

Please note The Metropole event is a packed evening’s entertainment and therefore does not feature a break for an evening meal. The Metropole does however provide a good selection of meals up until 7pm. They have also informed us that they still have rooms available for those looking for somewhere to stay overnight. Contact The Metropole for prices and availability.

We look forward to welcoming many of you into the Folk Horror Revival fold for what promises to be a fun filled weekend of talks, music, film and general merriment.
