RAT SCABIES, drummer with punk rock band The Damned, will be one of the guest speakers at the Weird Weekend in Woolsery next month.

He will tell his audience all about his search for the Holy Grail and will be among delegates at the world's largest gathering of monster and mystery researchers in the world.

Speakers from as far afield as Australia will talk on their adventures and discoveries.

They include cryptozoologist Tim Bull, otherwise known as Tim the Yowie Man, who will speak about his hunt for the Yowie, the Yeti-like ape man of the Australian bush.
