Edwardian Horror Show

A rare chance to wander the halls of Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery after hours, when distant noises and shapes in the darkness can take on a supernatural tinge. To further fuel your imagination, the Edwardian Tea Rooms will play host to some of early cinema’s spookiest short films: from the Edison Company’s 1910 take on the Frankenstein story, featuring a creation scene to chill the blood, to Segundo de Chomon’s demonic Red Spectre.

Gothic ivory-tinkling and context will be provided by the versatile accompanist Paul Shallcross, with haunted show-tunes courtesy of the DJs from Sugarfoot Stomp.

This event is presented in association with Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
Paul Shallcross’ scores were originally commissioned by the Abertoir Festival.
