Folk in the Pub: Modern Fairy Sightings with Jo Hickey-Hall

22nd March 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Folklorist, Jo Hickey-Hall is co author of new book, Magical Folk: British and Irish Fairies 500AD to the present. She set up research project, Modern Fairy Sightings two years ago and has an interest in fairy encounters that people continue to report.
