As part of the Edinburgh Horror Festival, come along and see the 2010 John Landis movie staring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis as two of Edinburgh's most notorious serial killers: Burke and Hare.

Why rob graves when killing's so much easier...

Before the movie, author Peter Ranscombe will tell us about the real Burke & Hare and why the need for bodies for scientific progress was so strong, it even excused murder. Peter has done extensive research for his new book: Hare - A Novel.

You will also be able to buy copies of Peter's book.
