This weekend, the College of Psychic Studies is celebrating 90 years at 16 Queensberry Place with an extraordinary exhibition of psychic artworks, photographs and artefacts from the College Archives. Why should you go along?
Well, ninety years ago the College of Psychic Studies took part in an extraordinary exhibition in London called Objects of Psychic Interest. A first of its kind in the UK, the exhibition displayed over 500 drawings, photographs, automatic writing slates, letters, books and ephemera.
Now, as part of their 90th anniversary celebrations, the College is once again exhibiting their incredible collection of cherished and curious artefacts from the world of spiritualism which will be on display to the public for the first time since 1925.
This weekend organisers are inviting members of the public to tour the College and see superb examples of psychic art, spirit photography, apports, seance records, spirit trumpets and direct writing slates.
The exhibition, which also includes material relating to College President in 1926, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, infamous ghost hunter Harry Price and the lives of many famous mediums, coincides with the unveiling of a blue plaque on the front of 16 Queensberry Place, commemorating Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s historic connection to the building.
The College is located at16 Queensberry Place, South Kensington, London SW7 2EB and will be open 12pm – 5pm from Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 January 2016
I spent much time in this fascinating place researching my first novel, and I can guarantee it is well worth a look!
