An evening of Christmas spirits

Christmas Spirits

Christmas Spirits

Do you believe in the spirit of Christmas…or people who get a tingly feeling from Christmas spirits.

If you are brave enough, ‘An Evening of Christmas Spirits’ at Tolson Museum, Huddersfield, on Thursday, 3 December, will definitely give a shiver down the spine.

Part of the museum’s Huddersfield University Autumn Lecture Series, the event will combine readings of classic ghost stories with elements of séance magic to provide a very different Christmas experience.

The evening will start at 6.30pm with the reading of a M.R. James ghost story. Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was an English author, medievalist scholar and the head of King’s College, Cambridge and of Eton College.

But he is best remembered for his ghost stories, many of which were written to be read aloud as Christmas Eve entertainment to select gatherings of friends at Cambridge University.

After the story, and just when everyone is feeling suitably spooked, there will be some séance magic.
