​This Halloween, join HistFest and the Museum of London as we delve into the depths of the Museum of London’s archaeological archives in search of London’s occult past.

Hunt through the stores by torchlight, make your own witch bottle and explore some of the darker objects in the museum’s collection. Then join authors Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery of Witches and Ben Aaronovitch, author of Rivers of London, for a discussion around how witchcraft and the occult still permeate our consciousness today. The discussion will be chaired by award-winning author and academic, Sunny Singh, and will be followed by an opportunity to buy the authors' books.

All guests will enjoy a complimentary glass of delicious alcoholic or non-alcoholic punch. This event is kindly supported by Hendrick's Gin.
