Spooky places in Havering revealed in new exhibition
Havering is home to a number of spooky goings on from friendly ghosts to dead pilots haunting their favourite pubs. A new exhibition at Havering Museum explores the spooky happenings around the borough and where you can go to have a fright.
The exhibition, which launches on Saturday and will run until November 24, will include Havering’s legends such as Captain Blood, folklore like Dick Turpin, and witchcraft in Havering.
Ellen Owen, exhibition project manager said: “This has been a truly unusual project where the project team, Matthew Abel, Chloe Branwhite and myself have spent over a year researching and talking to people to collect their stories and the history linked to Havering.
“We would like to thank all of the people who contributed to the exhibition and we hope the exhibition also enlightens people on aspects of the paranormal and belief in angels. This is the only exhibition where you will find a section on ‘orbs’ which have been captured on camera and these pictures have been analysed and the information validated. This is a truly amazing and wonderful exhibition.”
The exhibition also includes a series of five talks which include:
