A series of events across London throughout October, looking at our understanding of and relationship to death leading up to Halloween. The programme takes in the gothic, the occult, the creepy and morbidly fascinating. Expect torchlit cemetery tours, including The Magnificent Seven, as well as workshops and talks on subjects including the hidden language of graveyards, a forensic history of the supernatural and the cult of virgin martyrs — which comes with a complimentary gin cocktail.
It’s a popular event (many events are already sold out well in advance), so you’ll need to book early for spooky puppet theatre, talks about Crossrail’s burial grounds, photography, exhibitions and the séance.Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
