The authors will discuss the background of the project and the process of creating it, as well as sharing some of their favourite and telling sites. These folklore sites are located all over the Isle of Man and include holy wells, fairy caves, giant’s rocks, ghost bridges, and the creepiest place the authors have ever visited.

This illustrated talk will give a picture of five years’ worth of research into over 400 folklore sites around the Island, and give the audience a chance to meet and ask questions of the authors.

The evening will offer a unique and surprising insight into the treasures within ‘A Guide to the Folklore Sites of the Isle of Man.’
