    The front cafe bar area will be open from 7.00pm. The talks for Winchester Skeptics in the Pub start at 7.30pm in the main lecture theatre. There is a £3 fee including entry into a book raffle to cover speakers expenses and theatre hire that is collected at the door. 

    Who?  Deborah Hyde

    What's the talk about?

    Krampus, a demon-like creature from Alpine folklore, punishes naughty children at Christmas - in contrast with Jolly St Nicholas who brings presents. Krampusnacht, usually celebrated on December 5th, involves dressing up as the Krampus and roaming the streets frightening children with chains and bells. The Krampus phenomenon has been re-kindled; growing in popularity in the US and increasingly appearing in the UK.

    We'll look at where Christmas really comes from. See if you get candies.... or coal and a thrashing!
