This November’s theme is ‘anything goes!’ We’re looking at alternative forms of the Gothic, including podcasts, video games, non-fiction and some zombie movies for good measure. Here’s what you can look forward to (with links to sign up!) A reminder that all our talks are free to access but donations are very much appreciated. It helps keep us going and allows me to pay the speakers. You can donate here or here. Go to our YouTube channel to catch previous talks.

You can catch the talk at 10am and 7pm GMT (click on the times to find more information about the talk and to book your free ticket)
