Christmas Hauntings: Ghost Stories for Midwinter

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic lecture/debate/seminar


As the year settles firmly into winter, we are delighted to invite you to celebrate these long, dark nights with some bone-chilling tales of ghosts and hauntings at our midwinter event!

Join us on the 16th of December at 5 PM GMT for an evening of Christmas chills and winter wonder. We will enjoy an introduction to the tradition of the Christmas ghost story by Dr Derek Johnston of Queens University Belfast. We will explore midwinter’s association with gothic and occult in our discussion panel with Dr Tiffany Angus (Anglia Ruskin University), Professor Christine Ferguson (University of Stirling) and Dr Derek Johnston (QUB).
