How can we protect ourselves from vampires?
History contains no Death Eaters, but plenty of vampires. Cultural historian Christopher Frayling explores the history and myths surrounding these bloodsucking fiends over the centuries and gives a lesson on how the various methods of protecting ourselves. How has their appearance changed? What are their weaknesses? And how have they been appropriated by the Gothic imagination?

A cultural historian, critic and award-winning broadcaster on television and radio, he has published over twenty books on art, design, film and popular culture – including Nightmare – the birth of horror and Vampyres – Genesis and Resurrection.
This event is aimed at an adult audience, although children are welcome to attend.
