I’m at Dickensian Hauntings event

I’ll be taking part in a Dickensian Hauntings event in London at the end of the month. The major event celebrates the Victorian novelist’s contribution to the ghost story genre with writers, artists and performance artists coming together for what promises to be a spectacular and gruesome few days.

I’m joining in with a talk on ‘The Strange Sites and Stranger Sights of Haunted London’ inspired by the research I carried out on my Ghost Finder smartphone app. I’ll be picking a few highly haunted locations previously unknown to me and also some of London’s weirdest ghosts, including a multicoloured donkey, a man who looks like ‘a shaved pig’ and a motorcyclist without a face. I’ll also mention London’s most dangerously haunted house. The talk is free of charge.

I’ll be on at the Dickensian Hauntings event at 6pm on Saturday September 29. It’ll last about 45 mins plus questions, so plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your Saturday evening – although I would encourage you to stay for the rest of the night’s entertainment, all of which is being held in the spooky basement of Shoreditch Town Hall.
