Mari Lwyd narrated by Dion Winton-Polak

In 2020 I wrote a short story for the Sinister Horror Company‘s Advent Calendar. I based it on Mari Lwyd- the Welsh wassailing custom that involves a hobby horse constructed from a horse’s skull.

It was later reprinted in the Black Shuck Books‘ anthology Dreamland: Other Stories.

I’m delighted to have it narrated by Dion Winton-Polak. He did a wonderful job of it but then went one step further. He also recorded it in Welsh. Massive thanks to him for doing this.
