It will feature drama, visual arts and music from Northampton band Gladstone and West Midlands outfit Birthrite.

There will also be stalls run by independent traders selling jewellery, clothes and accessories.

Mike said: “Dracula is one of the most enduring characters of literature and has been portrayed in numerous movies.

“There will be something for everyone on the night.

“The event aims to celebrate all things Dracula, all things Gothic and all things Steampunk.

“Steampunk is a sub-culture of Victorian science fiction which embraces many of the technical and imaginative aspects within the Dracula story.”

Tickets for the evening cost £10, which includes a light buffet (people are being asked to bring their own drinks) and can be bought from Harrowden Books, or on the door on the evening.

Mike added: “The event will appeal to a wide variety of age groups, although you must be aged 16 or over to attend.”
