Through a Glass, Darkly - experience a Victorian séance
Meeting the dead, past-life regressions, mind-reading and apports are just a few of the occult occurrences the London Magician will talk about and demonstrate at Through a Glass, Darkly, an evening of the paranormal and magical effects that first flourished in Victorian séances.
In the historical and atmospheric surroundings of the Old Operating Theatre, the London Magician will talk about, and clearly demonstrate, the paranormal and magical effects that first flourished in the Victorian séances hosted by fraudulent mediums – individuals who were emulating genuine psychics in parlours across England and Europe throughout the 19th Century.
Meeting the dead, past-life regressions, amazing mind-reading, apports – these fraudulent mediums were the forefathers of the mindreaders and magicians of today. But far more than simply being informed, you will be shown: magic will be performed, minds read, tales and fortunes told. Illusion, mentalism and conjuring meet, all through a glass darkly.
