About the event

"The English Heretic Collection is a visionary field report based on  fifteen years of deep-vein travel to England's strangest landscapes –  with a host of tragic players. Actors, witches and psychopaths  maraud across a nightmare terrain of ominous stones and abandoned  military bases, transforming creative research into a surreal  documentary. Horror B-movies haunt the East Anglian countryside. Winston  Churchill is inaugurated into the Ancient Order of the Druids. The  suburbs of West London are home to psychedelic covens. From the red  clays of rural horror to the outer regions of occultism, from the  forensic vision of J.G. Ballard to the cauldron of The White Goddess, if  history is revealed as a paranoid ritual, how do we escape its time  traps to wild, new and imaginative geographies? Part  countercultural history of England, part ghost story, and part magickal  psychogeography, The English Heretic Collection is a darkly comical,  urgently lyrical, mental escape hatch from the hells of our own making. Comprising  14 magazine type sections within the book, imagine living the gaudy  occult reality of Man, Myth and Magic. Somewhere in that fetid, yellow  smell awaits your favourite nightmare of culture..."
