What is it?
Visit The Geffrye museum in London after dark this November for A Gothic and Ghostly Gathering.
On arrival guests can visit the candlelit early period rooms. Then at 7pm visitors can settle down for a spine-tingling evening of entertainment. There will be live music, readings, riddles and anecdotes, and ballads from the 18th and 19th centuries; with Dr Abigail Williams and the Alva theatre company.
Set in elegant 18th century buildings surrounded by gardens in Shoreditch, East London, The Geffrye explores the home from 1600 to the present day, focusing on the living rooms of the urban middle classes in England, particularly London. A series of period rooms and gardens show how such homes have been used and furnished over time, reflecting changes in society and patterns of behaviour, as well as style, fashion and taste.
