About the event

Throughout October 2018 Antique Beat and A Curious Invitation will be hosting The London Month of the Dead, a series of 42 different events investigating the capital’s relationship with its deceased residents. Events will include a private view of the Museum of London’s bone archive, taxidermy workshops, macabre walking tours and private views and a programme of weekend death salons with talks on subjects ranging from public dissection and body snatching to reincarnation and funereal folklore. Each salon will feature an authority in a field such as osteology, forensic pathology and the paranormal, who will offer their own perspectives and insights on mortality in the city.

Each year the London Month of the Dead donates 20% of their ticket revenue to the venue that plays host to each of their events. In 2018 the death salons, workshops, walks and concerts will be hosted at Brompton, Highgate, Kensal Green, Abney Park, Nunhead and Tower Hamlets Cemetery. This year we have also been able to include visits to St Bride's, the London Bone Archive and the medieval ossuary at Spitalfields

The London Month of the Dead has been curated by a Curious Invitation and Antique Beat to inform, entertain and provoke on the subject of death and London cemeteries.
