Hundredsof museums, galleries and historic spaces all over London will open up late and put on a dazzling array of special night-time events, offering the chance to experience culture and heritage in a totally unexpected way over the Halloween weekend in 2015. Take part in a ‘Dumb Supper’, an ancient custom to honour the dead.
At one of the special events that are happening you have the chance to take part in a small three course meal WITHOUT talking and only the sound of a live jazz quartet as accompaniment. The meal’s courses are also eaten backwards, beginning with dessert first in an inversion of the ‘living’ meal ritual or take part in a voyage of the damned at Royal Museums Greenwich; taste gin cocktails from across the ages at the London Transport Museum or dress up as your favourite Harry Potter character at Dulwich Picture Gallery and most of the events are FREE to attend.
Fri 30th & Sat 31st October 2015
