There will also be talks from other University of Worcester academics, including historian Prof Darren Oldridge on the media’s censorship of a TV drama.

Another talk, on Wednesday, May 1, will look at the impact of radio on grassroots music.

The Librarian of Weeping Bank will return to The Hive on Thursday, May 9 to present an immersive talk after dark drawing listeners into the shadowy world of witchcraft, possession and the occult.
