Goth City Promotions have announced that the second Re:Vamped Weekend of vampire-adjacent culture is returning in 2024, after the success of the first event in 2023.

Re:Vamped, which builds on the success of the World Dracula Day Lecture which first took place in 2021, takes place at the famous
Midland Hotel in Bradford over May bank holiday weekend. The Midland has a unique place in the history of UK gothic culture as the place where legendry Victorian stage actor Henry Irving died in 1905, on his farewell tour accompanied by his business manager – ‘Dracula’ author Bram Stoker.

The weekend begins with a vampire masquerade ball at the Midland on Friday 3rd May, and followed on Saturday evening by live music from three great live bands -
Westenra, Gothzilla, and Shallow Halo - at The 1 in 12 Club, Bradford’s anarchist social space which is currently raising funds for a substantial refurbishment.



The fourth World Dracula Day Lecture is this year presented by
James Swanton, with stalls and much more, in the Midland Hotel ballroom on the afternoon of Saturday 4th May (12pm-4pm). James is an award-winning actor and writer, increasingly recognised for his attempts to frighten people. He has so far played such otherworldly beings as the Mummy in Lot No. 249 (BBC), the Spirit in Host (Shudder) and the title role in Frankenstein's Creature (FrightFest, Leicester Square).

All proceeds from the event are to be donated to PAFRAS (Positive Action for Refugees & Asylum Seekers), a local refugee charity.
