Spirits of Place

28 June 2012: Spirits of Place. 7.30pm for 8pm start. £3/£2 concessions

The Rev Alan Walker discusses how the Church of England tried to come to terms with both the renewed interest in ghosts and haunted places and the growth in the request for exorcisms in the early 1970s. He puts this in the context of a suppressed church report on Spiritualism and the development of place-memory theories as portrayed in Nigel Kneale’s 1972 TV play The Stone Tape.

Each evening begins with the Fortmanteau, our monthly summary of strange news stories


We meet the last Thursday of each month (usually) upstairs at the Bell, 50 Middlesex Street, London E1 7EX.
