'TRY NOT TO GET STABBED' Chilling 'killer clown' threat to school pupils leads to kids being shut inside at lunchtime
In October 2016 the UK was terrorised and fascinated by the Killer Clown craze. Fear of them not only dominated newspapers but crept in to the public consciousness with rumours and stories being shared on social media and in school playgrounds.
Scott Wood, host of the London Fortean Society and author of London Urban Legends: The Corpse on the Tube attempts to dissect these clowns and unravel how it came about. He will look at the origins of the scares from hoaxed to guisers to earlier mythical terrors such as Spring-heeled Jack and the Chelsea Smilers.
