What's the talk about?

One night in 1875, a young woman in an old, remote house in Cumberland was startled to find a hideous creature picking at the lead on her window pane. As she lay paralysed with fear, it let itself into her room and sucked blood from her neck. How could this have been just an apparition? After all, her brothers saw it too, and it had left a hideous throat wound on the traumatised victim.

England isn't usually noted for its vampires, but the Beast of Croglin Grange is one of the notable exceptions. Join us for an evening of tracking the Beast back to its unlikely lair.
