Information:

A fascinating, funny and very personal talk exploring the themes of magic, memory, spiritualism, Britain’s weirdest museum (the Pitt Rivers) and psychedelics. Attempting to answer the question – what does magic mean to us in the 21st century? – Bramwell’s takes the audience on a ten-year adventure, which began after he inherited a hundred-year-old moustache in a box, bequeathed to him by an eccentric aunt.

Attempting to discover all he could about the moustache’s former owner – a Victorian freak show host – and why he had inherited such a singular object, Bramwell visited seances, spiritual churches, joined a freak show and even spent two years in a cult, drinking the Amazonian psychedelic plant, ayahuasca. His quest came to head after meeting former Dali model, Drako Zarahazar. To say any more would be to spoil it.

Against a backdrop of occultism and English eccentricity, The Haunted Moustache is a supernatural coming-of-age story and an earnest exploration into the nature of reality and magic, both in the supernatural realms and in the everyday.

Location: The Square Club
Doors 7pm / Talk Starts 7:30pm

David Bramwell is a regular presenter for BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4 documentaries on subjects ranging from Ivor Cutler to time travel. He is co-host of the Odditorium Podcast, author of the No9 Bus to Utopia, The Mysterium and The Odditorium and singer-songwriter in the band Oddfellow's Casino.
