Hull Scares & Scandals
Guided Walk

It's a dark, misty night in the Old Town of Hull. You are standing in a medieval graveyard, the bodies of the dead below your feet. A mysterious figure approaches through the damp evening fog. A spirit of the past? A ghost from the grave? Far's your guide Keith Daddy about to lead you on the 'Scares & Scandals' walk around Hull to tell you a thing or two about the gruesome and the ghostly of the Old Town. All are welcome and there is no need to pre-book.

For more information on this and other guided walks around Hull contact Keith Daddy via the festival office (01482) 616876

In conversation with Germaine Greer

A unique opportunity to meet the Australian author, journalist, media pundit and academic who has been at the cutting edge of feminism since the 1960's. Probably best known as the author of books such as The Female Eunuch and most recently The Whole Woman, Germaine Greer is coming to Hull to be in conversation with 'you' the audience.

"Greer has put her head above parapets others still fear to scale" (Lisa Jardine on The Whole Woman)
