THE MEMENTO MORIATAS AT THE MANCHESTER GOTHIC FESTIVAL






The Memento Moriatas are delighted to be travelling to Manchester to take part in the Gothic Festival in conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University's Centre for Gothic Studies. 

Kate Mayfield will be discussing her memoir, The Undertaker's Daughter, in which she describes her fascinating and decidedly gothic childhood in a Kentucky funeral home.

Essie Fox will talk about gothic themes that run through her dark Victorian novels, relating landscapes - both real and psychological - in the worlds of literature and art. 

Kirsten Morrison is a professional singer and composer whose haunting and gloriously gothic music often features on Radio and TV.
