Illumini Event 2012
To celebrate Charles Dickens 200th Anniversary, Illumini will take you back to Victorian London. The Victorians excelled at telling ghost stories. In an age of rapid scientific progress, the idea of a dark past and terror that is able to reach out and violate the present fascinated them. Dickens had a fascination with ghosts and death like many Victorians, haunted by the supernatural ghosts and fairies and telepathic encounters, occult religions and the idea of reincarnation.
Illumini will take you on a journey of Victorian hauntings, explore the dark side of a city long forgotten. Take torch light tours beneath the haunted streets of the city. The event will launch with a free grand opening night, full of entertainment, costumed performers and light shows. The event will display artworks, props and the history of Victorian culture and hidden spectres, with guided tours and evenings of ghost stories.
