Highgate Vampire Symposium - Highgate and the Occult

“BLOG ON” . . .

Hello everyone

Just to keep you all up to date on here: Part 2 of the Highgate Vampire Symposium 2015 is now up and running on my YouTube channel as well as also being linked from my Facebook profile page. We want to keep all these parts together as and when these are released, simply for the sake of easy reference. Part 2 – Haunted Highgate : A Paranormal Chronology – is presented by Redmond McWilliams, founder of The Highgate Cemetery Vampire Appreciation Society over on Facebook. I am sure you will all agree that Redmond does a sterling job in condensing such a complicated sequence of events, in order to prepare members of the Symposium for things yet to come!

Part 3 is ALSO on YouTube. In this, Highgate and the Occult 1 /2, Paul Adams continues to question myself about my involvement in the ‘infamous’ case of the so-called ‘Highgate Vampire’, and the Society’s discovery that a group of dedicated Satanists were using Highgate Cemetery to perform their clandestine nightly rituals in the late 1960s and early 1970s. But I am not the only speaker! We also hear from Charles Walker of Clapham Woods notoriety, who discusses his research into a Highgate-based cult and his own intimidation by Black Magical practitioners.

We are not exactly sure at this stage how many Parts the finished film footage will contain. There are 14 Speakers to include and that, of course, does not account for comments and observations from the audience. We did, of course make provisions for this from the outset, and kept Speakers essential time down to a minimum to accompany their essential points.

But don’t worry. We’ll get there!

All for now everyone,

David (Farrant).
