    Literary Event, Fri 9 May 2014


    Paul Hawkins gives us a gleefully dark exploration of European seasonal folklore. His Bad Santas book celebrates some of the most imaginative, terrifying and outright curious Christmas figures from across Europe - looking closely at its legacy of disquieting fairy stories.

    Wear your Christmas woolly (with the sleeves rolled up) for a festive drink and mince pie at this most unseasonal of Christmas parties. There will be a fantastic prize for the best Christmas jumper! (Cheap bar).

    Paul Hawkins is a lecturer in English and a musician. His band Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silence have recorded sessions for BBC Radio 1 and played at events at Tate Britain and London's South Bank Centre, as well as the Latitude Festival.
