How Sligo Shaped Dracula: conference open to all
November 10 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
A day long conference that aims to show how Sligo town influenced the novel ‘Dracula’. Members of the public are warmly welcome. Speakers will include experts in Bram Stoker and Gothic fiction as well as esteemed local historians. The event will be located in the atmospheric ‘Canus Major’, the deconsecrated Catholic church within the grounds of the Victorian county asylum (now the luxury Clayton Hotel). Fans of the novel will appreciate the significance of such a location! We hope to see you there!
