Ghost Villages and Postal Mischief: An evening with Dr. Bramwell at Bom-Banes

David Bramwell

BBC Radio 4 presenter and author, Dr Bramwell (that’s me) delivers two illustrated talks in his own inimitable style. The evening will begin by exploring the history of British ghost villages, a talk which incorporates haunted islands, weird MOD land, the UKs little-known second royal family, Dr Who, ladybird plagues, drowned villages and a haunted cupboard.

There will be a short break for cake then, in the second half, he’ll be sharing his passion for some of the world’s greatest postal pranks, with particular focus on Victorian trickster Reginald Bray who, over his lifetime, posted over 30,000 singular items through the newly formed Royal Mail. To say any more would be to spoil it.
