A selection of stuff that may or may not tickle your fancy this October 31st

Living close to Sutton Hoo I have come to enjoy the magnificence and importance of this story.

The British Library are hosting two productions of the story as part of their Anglo Saxon season.

Seriously, we all fight our own demons so I’ve included this in dedication to a great performer with a haunting, wonderful voice.

 

For all the little goblins, monsters and other noble characters out on the town tonight have fun and stay safe.
