A Paranormal Night of Discovery: Part 1

Introduction to Victorian Spiritualism Talk

Join Dr Kate Cherrell as she delivers a brief introduction to the bizarre and fascinating field of Victorian Spiritualism. She will deliver stories on the most colourful mediums in history and impart the secrets of spirit contact.

Victorian entertainment was not all music halls, dances and theatre; it often involved tales of the afterlife and communion with the undead. Spiritualism, mediumship and séance was wild, unregulated and utterly, literally unbelievable.

Mediums delivered supposed messages from the deceased, comforted the bereaved and offered proof of life beyond death. But did you know that they also made live animals appear from thin air and allowed so-called ghosts to walk among us?

Throughout the 19th century, there are accounts of mediums levitating across cities, filling rooms with spirit flowers, dumping eels on the heads of sitters and sharing biscuits with ghosts.

A Paranormal Night of Discovery is a 2-part event. To attend Part 2, please book your place here.here.**
