Little shout out that we'll be talking about our new piece Big Cat: I Know What I Saw at a fundraiser day called...
The Day of Weird: A Celebration of Eccentricity
11 November, 1pm onwards (we're on at 10.45pm)
North By Northwest Pub, Islington, London
£5 on the door (fundraising for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation)
We suspect we'll be the only ones who know almost nothing about fortean things, but we're pretty psyched, not least because the charity auction has a hand of glory, a dragon's tooth and the fangs of a beast of Gevaudan in it!
