Photographs of Halloween divination filming

For the Museum's 2016 exhibition (Glitter and Gravedust: Halloween Past and Present) we thought it would be a good idea to have a film showing different types of divination traditionally done on October 31st.  Gemma Gary and Jane Cox of Troy Books enthusiastically took up the idea and have done a fantastic job with the filming (which can be seen from March 25th in the Museum).

We asked members of the Museum's Friends organisation to help out and we had lots of volunteers.

Here are some photos of them doing the filming recently (photographs courtesy of Ellie Smart).

If you want to know more about what is going on in these photos, you will have to visit the exhibition to find out!

All looks rerribly mysterious, yet fun. Been a while since I made a film.
