London Alchemy in Brompton Cemetery

This June, following our annual London Month of the Dead celebration, Antique Beat and A Curious Invitation will be returning to Brompton Cemetery with a series of events on the theme of alchemy.

The spirits of magical London characters John Dee, Francis Barrett, Aleister Crowley and Austin Osman Spare (along with their Swiss cousins Paracelsus and Jung) will be evoked by historians, folklorists and practitioners over a weekend in one of the city’s most magnificent seven cemeteries.

Thrill to the music of ‘alchemist of sound' Lydia Kavina (possibly the world’s greatest theremin player) and to tales of transformation performed by Giles Abbot (one of our greatest story tellers) in the candlelit cemetery chapel. And benefit Dead Londoners whilst you do it: each ticket includes a 20% donation toward a host of renovation projects as part of the heritage lottery fund fund appeal for this most precious of London places.

And to help distill your own alchemical spirit, each ticket also includes an bespoke Hendrick's Gin cocktail.

Saturday 4th June from 1:00 to 3:00 pm
