THE DAVENPORT SÈANCE

THE DAVENPORT SÈANCE

Co-devised by Professor Richard Wiseman & Lawrence Leung

Presented by Lawrence Leung

Brave participants are needed for a séance. Do you believe in the afterlife? Do you dare take a seat in the secret room?

Famed UK psychologist/sceptic Richard Wiseman and TV comedian/paranormal enthusiast Lawrence Leung invite you to be part of a supernatural experiment.

“The Davenport Séance” is a unique, fully immersive 30min experience that takes place in dark Victorian-era room. Twenty (un)lucky souls will go on a haunting journey into 19th century spirit mediumship from Melbourne’s hidden past. A bell will be rung. Lamps will be switched off. The séance will begin…

Seats are limited, so book immediately. This special event will sell out.

Please note: The performance duration is approx. 30mins and there is a strict lock-out/no latecomer policy. Not for the faint-hearted.
