Guided tour of Abney Park Cemetery
A guided tour of Abney Park cemetery with Samantha Perrin
Sunday 10th October 2021 from 11:00 am and 2:00 pm

Cemeteries are our outdoor archives. Tangible time capsules. Accessible fragments of our collective heritage and individual tales of love and loss. Join historian Samantha Perrin, as she wanders through the glorious golds and oranges of autumnal Abney Park to celebrate the Cemetery's resident occultists, necromancers, magicians and spiritualists (and those who exploited them!).

This walking tour focuses on the magical, mystical and mystifying from the 'long century' and ends with a recital of some ghostly poetry by one of Abney's most famous female authors.

Tickets £12 including a 20% donation toward a host of restoration projects at Abney Park Cemetery

Samantha Perrin
Samantha Perrin is a cemetery and death historian with an MA in Victorian Studies. She is one half of Doyennes of Death: a two-woman team of storytellers who share their love of history and the remarkable lives of the interred from a feminine perspective. A mix of tragic figures and fearless avengers, Doyennes of Death tours celebrate the lives of London’s forgotten heroines amongst the crumbling stones and grey ladies. It’s Victoriana with brass knuckles.

Venue - The Dissenters' Chapel, Kensal Green Cemetery, London (ticket includes a tour of the catacombs)
