The Lafayette Seance


First, many thanks to the 500 members that came along to The Lafayette Seance at the Festival Theatre.  We hope that you had an interesting and entertaining time.  Part of the evening involved a live webcast.  Although the quality of the webcast wasn’t perfect, we thought that you might enjoy watching the first five minutes so that you can see how it all looked to the people watching online…..

Also, Naomi kindly sent us this image from the event…..

Some may wish to believe that we did indeed conjure up the spirit of Lafayette, and that he chose to make his presence known by appearing as several little balls.  Others may think that the final word in the previous sentence is a better description of that explanation.  Either way, it is a fun photograph.  Feel free to post your comments about the evening, and do say if you experienced anything weird and unusual that historic night…..

Finally, to order ‘The Death and Life of The Great Lafayette’ by Ian Robertson and Gordon Rutter, click here

    Had a great time and so did my friend who I persuaded to come along to have a different kind of evening. At first she wondered what the hell she had got herself into but by the end she was well into the spirit – ahem – of things.

    Funnest part of the evening – Peter Lamont being pelted with blue missiles and a grumpily sarcastic & cute piano playing teddy bear.

    Any chance of seeing the rest of the seance webcast or even the last few mins?

    Really enjoyed learning about lafayette from the experts. Was surprised by the picture that came across of a very caring, ethically aware man. Loved animals, campainged against vivisection and made sure his own staff had decent living arrangements.
    It was a great night with some very odd surprises!
    As Helen Duncan would say, “gravo!”

    […] a few events to mark his death, including a show by Paul Daniels, but your correspondent joined the Secret Society to for an evening of spookiness.  I had a great time though I am sad to admit that I didn’t […]
