Things to do in May

Posted by Sara on April 22, 2009

May looks so choc full of fabulous gothicky goodness I thought it might be better to write about things before they happen for a change.

ev2008_01498First up is the cheerily titled “Death and Mourning in Victorian England” Taking place in St John’s Chapel, Woodvale cemetery, this is an illustrated talk on how Victorians fused fascinating rituals with elaborate etiquette in order to mourn their dead. This vast, enchanting cemetery is steeped in history and worth a visit in itself. 4th and 16th May 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM. Entrance Fee: £6.00, (£5.00 Concessions)

For lovers of all things Steampunk, The Steam Punk Hidden Circus are landing in the Marlborough Little Theatre for one day only to present remarkable acts ‘from a future seen in the past’. Thrills and spills guaranteed and comes with an all day Steampunk market and all. 3rd May 1pm – Midnight. £5.Marlborough Little Theatre, 4 Princes St.


“Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. ….silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House and whatever walked there, walked alone.”

Published fifty years ago The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson is a genuinely scary read and The Brighton Little Theatre are bringing their adaptation to the stage from Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th May. Tickets only £7.50.www.the-little.co.uk

Meanwhile over at the lovely, amazing Sealife centre:


And last but certainly not least, every Wednesday, upstairs in the haunted room at Northern Lights, Brighton’s very own Ghost Walker, Rob Marks, will be appearing in one of his many guises as Charley Jeremiah Tench, showcasing his new performance ’Ghosts Upstairs’. Enjoy an hour or so of ghostly tales told by candlelight accompanied by a glass of ‘fisherman’s friend’ to chase away those chills. Mr Marks’ exceptional storytelling skills, coupled with some genuinely gruesome tales that are all based in local history, makes this a great night out for ghost hunters and historians alike.

Starts for 8.30pm, Wednesdays.
