Lentil Soup Beyond the Veil: Dining with the Dead in Victorian Britain

Mon 27 January 2020

Join historian Elsa Richardson for a talk and reading group exploring the dining habits of the departed.

Victorian Britain was full of hungry ghosts. Ghosts that left bite marks in apples, nibbled spears of buttered asparagus, wolfed game pie, sipped wine and relished cream cakes. Spirits were called to tea by followers of spiritualism, a popular movement that was grounded in the conviction that it was possible to communicate with the souls of the dead.

The event is programmed by Market Gallery. Travel and childcare bursaries are available for those in need. For more information please email market@marketgallery.org
