BBC Radio WM, 4 February 2019

Birmingham Horror Group organiser Steve Green was interviewed by BBC Radio WM presenter Mollie Green (no relation) about that evening’s guest appearance at the Two Towers Brewery by author Adam Nevill and plans for the first Birmingham FearFest in May.

Many thanks to Chrissie Harper for extracting this audio file.

Best-selling author Adam Nevill put Under a Watchful Eye

The Birmingham Horror Group’s special guest in February was best-selling Birmingham-born author Adam Nevill, who discussed his early influences, writing career, new novel Under a Watchful Eye and – announced just two days earlier – the forthcoming movie adaptation of his earlier work The Ritual.

After the meeting, which was held in the adjoining Two Towers Brewery and filmed for coverage on regional station Made In Birmingham, many of the members moved back into the Gunmakers Arms to continue the conversation with Adam.
