Attend Your Own Funeral This Halloween…

An appointment at the funeral parlour awaits. Discover your final fate at the British Library.

The British Library invites you to attend your own funeral this Halloween. Join the British Library and award-winning theatre company Les Enfants Terribles for a macabre Halloween party like no other. They invite you to be the guest of honor at an extraordinary funeral: your own! Dare you go on?

With other travelling souls, negotiate your way through the afterlife in this immersive experience. Enjoy installations, music, food and a bar, plus the wild and dark tones of live band Tankus the Henge.

With special late night opening to the major exhibition Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination, delight in 250 years of Gothic horror, from Frankenstein and Dracula in their authors’ own hand to a Victorian vampire slaying kit.

Late at the Library: The Sorting, a funeral-inspired experience with macabre performances, music, DJs and bar, takes place on Friday 31 October.
