Brighton Festival 2018Public booking opens: Fri 24 Feb, 9am

Dr. David Bramwell

The Cult of Water

‘Bramwell clearly has an eye for the oddball and arcane’ The Guardian

Join ‘a masterful storyteller’ (Radio Times) for a candle-lit journey in search of the supernatural secrets of our waterways.

Aided by a witch, Jarvis Cocker, and magician-author Alan Moore, David Bramwell battles his own thalassophobia (the fear of ‘what lurks beneath’) to unearth little-known stories and myths that surround our rivers.

The River Don is the focal point for this psycho-geographical journey that blends music, animation and film with captivating monologue. You’ll also learn about Brighton’s lost River Wellsbourne in a post-show Q&A.

Sat 26 & Sun 27 May, 9pm
£12.50, Under 26s/Festival Standby £10*
