Halloween Lunch-time Talk: Elizabeth Gaskell’s Gothic Tales

Get into the Halloween spirit and join us for a lunch-time talk on Elizabeth Gaskell’s gothic tales, with Dr Diane Duffy.

Mysterious vanishings, eerie old buildings, windswept moors and ghostly goings-on: Elizabeth Gaskell’s goosebump-inducing gothic stories are a far cry from the gritty Manchester novels with which she’s often associated.

Come along at 1pm to find out more about these dark and decidedly spine-tingling tales!
