Founder Cheish said: “True crime really is having its moment lately following the release of several serial killer specials on Netflix that gripped the public. I

will be bringing together criminology and forensic psychology alongside real-life chilling stories all about some of the world’s most notorious cold-blooded killers."

The two-hour talk will include sections on how to raise a serial killer, to look at how children can grow up to kill, as well as how to spot a psychopath.

Cheish added: “Most serial killers and psychopaths are described as having highly manipulative personalities which means their crimes can go undetected for years. These talks aim to educate, fascinate and contribute to the ongoing conversation surrounding true crime with an injection of dark humour along the way."

Serial killers featured in the talk are: Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Aileen Wuornos, Edmund Kemper, Richard Ramirez, Karla Homolka, Henry Lee Lucas & Ottis Toole, Richard Ramirez, Ed Gein and Dennis 'BTK' Rader

Due to the subject matter there is an age restriction of 18+ for the event.
