Santa and his Minions: The darker side of jolly | Gail-Nina Anderson lecture series

Join cultural historian Gail-Nina Anderson for her latest talk. Quite aside from the birth of Christ, this time of year has inspired many wintry personifications. Just a jolly fat man dressed in red and distributing toys, or a miracle-working saint or a punishing demonic entity or an earthy gnome? Who really represents the seasonal spirit of the turn of the year?

Gail is a popular public speaker in Newcastle upon Tyne. She is an expert on folklore and art-related themes – particularly when they are tinged with elements of the gothic and the macabre. Her lively, illustrated lectures at the Black Gate are always popular and regularly sell out.

The Black Gate has a lift and is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Refreshments – including tea and coffee – will be available to purchase at this event. 

Tickets for this event will go on sale at 12 midday on Friday 27 October, via the link below.
