Make Halloween as educational as it is entertaining this year, with a visit to one of the Macabre Autumn Seminars at Barts Pathology Museum.

Topics running up to the big night are especially fascinating, including a discussion on Victorian mourning customs (September 25th), a talk on Britain's first female serial killer (October 2nd), and just before All Hallows Eve, a suitably grisly explanation on the trade in the teeth of corpses (October 30th).

The seminars take place from 6:30pm and cost £6.50, including a special wine reception.

In addition to the fascinating discussion on offer, attendees will also be invited to have a look round the museum's more macabre galleries, which include a particularly extensive collection of human femurs dating back to the mid-1800s that the venue is especially proud of.

Soothe the nerves afterwards by booking into the Chesterfield Mayfair, and complete the evening with a fantastic meal at the Michelin-starred Tamarind Restaurant as part of the Taste of Tamarind package.
