James Burt: Chalk Ghosts

Sussex is haunted by stories. Sometimes it seems that folklore is confined to books, but it’s still out there. Looking at Sussex myths, ghosts and chalk, this talk will show how our world is just as strange as it has ever been. There are ghosts all around us. James Burt looks Sussex legends over the years, drawing links between them, and asking why these stories have changed over the years.

James Burt lives and works in Brighton. He writes and gives talks on topics which have included Slenderman and Death Folklore. He has recently spoken at the Towner Gallery, Brighton Fringe Festival, Brighton’s Catalyst Club and the Wilderness Festival.
