Event description
Get spooked this Halloween at a candlelit summit of legendary ghost hunters and experts at The Standard, London’s Library Lounge.

About this Event

This seated, socially-distanced event will include readings from Bompas & Parr’s new publication Ghost Stories of TripAdvisor, plus a panel discussion with:

  • Roger Clarke – critic, author of A Natural History of Ghosts and youngest-ever member of the Society for Psychical Research
  • Viktor Wynd - impresario, collector, owner of The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities
  • Marie Wesson – co-founder and paranormal investigator of UK Ghosts Hunts
  • Linda Rodriguez McRobbie - a journalist who covers the stranger side of things
  • Graham Dickson - co-founder and Director of London’s leading improv school and theatre The Free Association

Tickets include a glass of Veuve Clicquot on arrival.

Still feeling thirsty after a night of ghost stories? Head to the Double Standard bar for more Halloween treats - where we're featuring specially-concocted cocktails, made to the specification of the world’s best-deceased bartenders as divined from Bompas + Parr's favourite medium Carrie Kirkpatrick. Each bartender; Jerry Thomas (1830-1885), Ada Coleman (1875-1966), and Ernest Gantt (1907-1989) who created the infamous Zombie cocktail, has been contacted by Carrie who sought the unwritten concoctions that they took to their grave with them.

*Please note, The Standard, London is in fact, not a haunted hotel 👻
