The Witching Hour & A Night of Spiritualism | Ballarat Heritage Festival
May 21 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Two historical shows with a short interval.
The Witching Hour
Have you found anything usual while renovating your house?
Join Historian Dr David Waldron and Historian/Magician Dr Jo Clyne as they present the findings in a part Victorian era style lecture, part magic show.
A Night Of Spiritualism
Ballarat séances and spiritualists were well known enough internationally to be discussed by no less than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, avowed spiritualist and the creator of the detective Sherlock Holmes.
Join us in a magical exploration of Ballarat’s Spiritualist past featuring many of the sleight of hand tricks and illusions that were the staple of Victorian mediums.
