“You are my creator, but I am your master”.
Dare to join us on Wednesday 23 May for the third in our Living Literature series, an epic thriller brought to life through immersive performances, talks, workshops and activities. Welcome to the world of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein!
Listen to chilling ghost stories by candlelight as our experts set the scene of that night in the ‘year without a summer’ at the Villa Diodati, where the first version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was created. Tread carefully through Victor Frankenstein’s rooms in Ingolstadt, relive the birth of the monster, and learn about the scientific and medical innovations of the period that provided inspiration for Shelley. Listen to talks and join in with activities led by gothic experts, learn about how Shelley’s Frankenstein has inspired popular culture since its publication in 1818, and more!
