You may know your Cullens from your Salvatores but it’s time to look beyond the kid-friendly vampires of ‘Twilight’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and discover a world of darkness you can really sink your teeth into. On Saturday (March 8), Goldsmiths College and ASSAP (the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena, if you didn’t know) are hosting Seriously Staked; a day dedicated to those shifty sunlight-dodgers packed full of talks by experts from around the world.
Speakers include John Michaelson, a real life Buffy who aims to expose vampires to the world; Jonathan Ferguson, a Curator of Firearms at the Royal Armouries in Leeds who believes in real life Vampire Killing Kits; John Fraser, a paranormal researcher who works on behalf of the Transylvanian Society of Dracula and many more. Hoping to provide a serious but entertaining expedition into the world of all things vampiric, you can count on this being bloody good fun. Carly-Ann Clements
