This Funzing Experience:
Why do human feet keep washing up on a beach in British Columbia? Why are a million Japanese unable to leave their bedrooms? What are the cargo cults of Melanesia and why is Prince Philip worshipped as a god there?

The world we live in is populated with the strange, the unbelievable, and pure nightmare fuel. Join David Bramwell for a talk that will leave the hair on the back of your neck prickling...

Based on his best-selling book, The Mysterium, David draws on contemporary folklore, weird science, and bizarre phenomena to explore some of the strangest and most enduring mysteries of the 21st century.

What modern mysteries lie within the internet?
Why have ghostly number stations been transmitting coded messages across our airwaves for 6 decades? Did Carl Jung solve the mystery of UFOs?
What is the greatest mystery on Earth?

In Bramwell’s guiding hands Modern Mysteries and Weird Wonders will leave you entertained and reeling in the knowledge that the world is just as mysterious today as it was to our ancestors thousands of years ago.

Venue: Caffeine & Cocktails

Doors: 6:30pm / Talk starts: 7.00pm.
