A recent opinion poll showed that a third of Britons believe in ghosts (more than profess to be religious) and 10% believe they have been in contact with the dead. Leading skeptic Chris French will present the case for the normal over the paranormal. His talk will consider the numerous factors that may lead people to believe that they have had a supernatural encounter, including hoaxes, misinterpretation of natural phenomena, hallucinatory experiences and the possible role of complex electromagnetic fields and infrasound, photographic evidence, electronic voice phenomenon, and the influence of the media.

Tickets £12. Each ticket includes one delightful Hendrick’s Gin cocktail and a 20% donation towards a host of restoration projects at Kensal Green Cemetery.

This salon in the cemetery is part of the London Month of the Dead 2017.
