Special Event

Miss Sylvia Sceptre Presents The Library of Eerie Tales

The Coffin Works, Birmingham
26 October 2023

Sylvia Sceptre presents an evening of eerie magic and the macabre.

Step into the shadows this Halloween and experience an evening of unearthly delights. Madame Sceptre’s macabre show of magic and mystery will bring a shiver to your spine and a frisson of the absurd to Halloween as the night draws in. Madame Sceptre is a character created from Victorian Spiritualism. She immerses audiences in the world of Victorian occultism and witchcraft. Expect magic, mirth and hauntology.

The show is devised and performed by Careena Fenton-Cullen. Careena is researching towards a doctorate in Victorian Spiritualism, Witchcraft and Performance Magic. She has been a performer for many years and is a member of The Magic Circle.
