David Weinczok : Castle Hunter

City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX, UK

David Weinczok hunts castles, and for that Scotland is undoubtedly the place to be. You won't find him at many gold-laden palaces; he's more the ‘windswept ruin atop a seaside crag’ sort of guy. Some of his favourites, however, exist in the realm of fiction and to that end he is now looking at the castles of the big, silver, and video game screens and asking, 'but could it actually keep the bad guys out?'

From Game of Thrones' Winterfell to Disney's iconic turreted tower and the classic keeps of Super Mario Bros., David will lay siege to the cracks in their defences and crown a King of (Fantasy) Castles. Find out what separates proper castles from phoney ones and prepare for a nostalgic, pixellated assault on the castles all good geeks grew up with.

Ticket Price : £3.00
