In the Shadow of York Minster...


With the coming of dusk and the door of an atelier closed for the day – it is possible to catch a glimpse of a celebrated miniaturist and storyteller clad in her distinctive black feline boots wandering through the snickelways and secret passages of York in a quest to wake the dead.

For those of a curious and hardy temperament – come along and listen to the Lady Brigante as she shares with you the tales of the illustrious, the miscreants, artists, misfits and ordinary folk who have ALL been lost to history – until now!

However, for those of a sensitive nature averse to real stories of tears, heartache and tragedy – a walk with the Lady Brigante may NOT be to your taste.
