Thursday 7th June, 6–8pm
Park Building, University of Portsmouth
In the University of Portsmouth‘s first building, there is writing on the wall. Hidden in a turret cupboard on the second floor is a curious quotation with a sinister message that seems to be linked to a dark incident in Park’s past. Despite the help of the city’s famous writers, who come to life for a series of talks on Electric Telegraphy, Wireless Radio and Radium, the evening will take a spooky turn. As Dickens and Kipling, H.G. Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle lead you up the ornate staircase and along atmospheric corridors, you can solve clues in the sci-fi stories, scientific articles and even the account of a séance they’ll share in this immersive literary mystery.
This is a free event: please gather on the steps at the main entrance to the Park Building by 6pm…
