King Henry I Street, 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. 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.
Devised and directed by Dr Alison Habens, CCi, in association with Supernatural Cities and Portsmouth City Council’s BookFest.
This is a free event: please gather on the steps at the main entrance to the Park Building by 6pm.
