Something strange is happening at the Petrie Museum this Halloween…
200 years after English novelist Mary Shelley published Frankenstein in 1818, her blood-curdling monster still haunts how we think of death today.
To mark this spooky anniversary, Egyptologist and cultural historian John J Johnston and curator Subhadra Das are bringing the creature back to life through their whistle-stop tour of the pop culture that keeps us up at night.
Halloween at the Petrie Museum, Wednesday 31 October, 18:30. £5 tickets will be available to buy on the night and include a glass of wine. Dressing up strongly encouraged!
