Dacre Stoker, 'Stoker on Stoker' presentation in Whitby

Bram Stoker’s visit to Whitby, a deadly Storm Warning

BRAM STOKER’S Great Grand Nephew Dacre Stoker will be returning again to Whitby – on Wednesday 8 July 2015 at the La Rosa Hotel, East Terrace, where he will be delivering his very special Multi-Media Presentation entitled: ‘STOKER on STOKER’.

This informative and compelling Presentation will weave together details of the history of “Dracula” with the Stoker family history, reflecting on Bram’s life in Dublin and London and summer holiday on Whitby.  A collection of Dacre’s slides will delve in to the back-stories, origins and mysteries of Bram’s writing of his world famous novel.

‘STOKER on STOKER’ has fascinated audiences world-wide, exploring issues that have baffled Dracula fans and scholars since this Gothic novel’s publication in 1897.

Dacre, Canadian-American author and film-maker, has co-edited (with Professor Elizabeth Miller) ‘The Lost Journal of Bram Stoker – The Dublin Years’, and has contributed to John Edgar Browning’s ‘Bram Stoker’s Forgotten Writings’. He co-authored a sequel to the novel ‘Dracula’, named ‘Dracula The Un-dead’ (which sold approximately one million copies worldwide as it had been translated into 22 different languages). Dacre is a sportsman who coached the Canadian Olympic Team in Modern Pentathlon for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, and is a Court Tennis teaching professional. He has also been a teacher for many years at an international independent College in Ontario, Canada.

The doors at La Rosa Hotel will be open at 7.15pm and the talk starts at 7.30pm. Prior to the Presentation, attendees will be able to enjoy a Slideshow which will include a variety of images taken in Whitby, by photographer Si Mulgrave.

Tickets: £10 per person – contact Tony Partington (owner of Bram’s View Apartment, 6 Royal Crescent) via his mobile: 07949 458900  or email: tparting@hotmail.com . It’s advisable to book early and ensure a seat. All profits from the Presentation evening will be donated to the Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary.
