Event description
A lecture looking at the world of the Victorian Occult, the big names that sold it, and the skeptics that tried to expose it.

About this Event

In 1848, Western New York, two young sisters stumbled across the spirit world and a religion rapidly grew out of it. Stretching from the Tsars of Russia, to the court of the French Emperor, across oceans and continents, a movement spread. In 1888 the sisters revealed a startling secret - the spirit rappings that originated the movement had been faked. Ash Pryce is a stage mentalist and founder of the Edinburgh Skeptics society. In his first traditional lecture in more than a decade, he will be looking at the world of the Victorian Occult, the big names that sold it, and the skeptics that tried to expose it.
