Weird Weekend North 2016

I’ll be giving a talk on Saturday 2nd April, at the Weird Weekend North 2016 conference, to be held at Rixton with Glazebrook Community Hall.  My subject of ‘The Hunt for Planet X’ is just one of a number of eclectic talks to be given that day.  I’ll also have a table of cheap second-hand books to sell, and copies of Dark Star with me.  This is a rare chance in the UK to attend a lecture about Planet X, and to discuss the work of Zecharia Sitchin, as well as the very latest exciting developments in the search for new planets in the outer solar system.

“The Weird Weekend North is a must for anyone interested in Ghosts, Fortean, Fairies, Folklore, Cryptozoology and other fascinating stuff.  The Cheshire village of Rixton with Glazebrook makes a relaxing venue for a convention on the weird and unusual.  Just 14 miles from Manchester and less than 30 miles from Liverpool, Weird Weekend North is easy to get to with excellent motorway and transport links.  A two day event, it gives investigators a chance to share their experiences and findings with like-minded people, and is also an ideal introduction to newcomers to the world of the unusual.  With subjects as varied as cryptozoology, folklore, fairies, ghosts, fortean and other downright weird stuff it promises to be a fascinating weekend.”

  1. Wow, if only I lived in the UK… Do you have anybody recording you, so you can upload it to YouTube afterward? =) I could do all the editing for you!

    I’m not sure, Chris. I’d be too self-conscious to organise such a thing myself, and I still haven’t even finished compiling my talk, such has my week been. But perhaps one of the organisers has this in mind? I’ll ask

    1. I hear ya there, just a thought. That would be cool, let me know if they upload anything so I can watch it. =)
