We are a group, open to both to students and external members, which is dedicated to the Gothic subculture and its components, such as fashion, history, art, aesthetic, etc. We also have a book club subset dedicated to Gothic Literature. We hold social meetings, film nights, arrange trips and fund-raise for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
