With Mark Fisher, Peter Fleming and Alex Niven.
(Unfortunately, there is a charge for this – naturally, however, none of the money is going to the authors … )
2. Saturday 16 March, at the Showroom
Discussion on the Eerie, with Justin Barton, Mark Fisher, Anjalika Sagar, Kodwo Eshun, John Foxx, Elizabeth Walling (Gazelle Twin)
Free, no booking required
3. Sunday 17 March, 6-8pm, at the Boathouse cafe, Bawdsey, Suffolk
In the Boathouse cafe on the banks of the River Deben, Mark Fisher and Andy Sharp (English Heretic) discuss the relationship between the East Anglian landscape and the contemporary reimagining of the eerie. The Boathouse is located in the grounds of Bawdsey Manor, the site where radar was invented, just opposite the locations in Old Felixstowe that inspired key scenes in M R James’s story “Oh, Whistle and I’ll Come To You”. The conversation will be illustrated by readings, a screening of Fisher and Sharps short film, Bleak and Solemn (2013) and excerpts from On Vanishing Land.
Free, no booking required.
