Event: Victorian Seance at Charles Dickens Exhibition

I've only just heard about an event happening on Thursday evening, which sounds perfect for around the time of Halloween or Samhain and, even better, is free to get in.

This Thursday, London Dreamtime will be at the Cuming Museum in South London performing a Victorian-style seance as part of an exhibition about Charles Dickens and Dickensian London.

Vanessa of London Dreamtime said: "The museum commissioned us to create a new performance piece about a seance as part of their exhibition on Charles Dickens. 'Charles and The Flickering Lights' is a mixture of storytelling and vintage soundscapes, Moog, Ring Modulator etc and, as ever, the whole thing is inspired by our beloved London. Enter another world."

The Cuming Museum is a small musuem in South London with displays that include archaeology, ethnography, social history and natural history items collected by Cuming Family in the 19th Century.

The show is on Thursday 18 October from 6pm-8pm at the Cuming Museum, 151 Walworth Road, London SE17 1RY.
