Folk Horror Returns Ahead of The Urban Weird in April

Folk Horror has officially returned!! This could not be more serendipitous given that in three months time the OGOM project will collaborate with Supernatural Cities to present The Urban Weird (6th, 7th April) with more than a slight nod to folk horror!

From Britannia to the Wicker Man: The Welcome Return of Folk Horror   makes reference to the ‘submerged histories’ which give play to the imagination and rise up to frame spacial narratives and this is precisely the theme for our Spectral St Albans tour. St Albans is built on the remains of the ancient Roman city of Verulamium, razed to the ground by Boudicca.

You can join us for a stunning tour of the buried city walls  on the 7th April and engage with the magical and supernatural history of Hertfordshire’s finest spectral city (home to tortured martyrs, ghostly medieval monks, pagan Gods, grotesque carvings, winged skulls, Wiccan communities, folklore rituals and more). Look out for news of how to join us coming shortly!
