Join The College of Psychic Studies' curator and archivist Vivienne Roberts for an exclusive in-person viewing of our unusual collection of mediumistic art, spirit photography and strange objects from the Victorian dark seances. 

While encountering these esoteric wonders, you will also gain an insight into the College's multilayered history. You'll meet key characters such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the pioneering visionary women who trail-blazed the development of spirit-inspired art, such as Anna Howitt Watts, Georgiana Houghton, Ethel le Rossignol and Madge Gill. 

Discover the work of their contemporary counterparts too, and enjoy a rare opportunity to admire the artworks of Aleksandra Ionowa, exhibited for the first time outside of her home country. Many think of her as the Finnish Hilma af Klint.

Throughout the tour, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask Vivienne questions. She has so many anecdotes to share about what it's like looking after such a unique, historic and downright spooky collection. It's a role she describes as the best job anyone could wish for.

If you are drawn to ghostly things and relish tales of the unexpected, then this is the tour for you.
