Some would have us believe life in The Victorian Era was never ending highbrow parties, elegant dresses and elitist gentleman’s clubs but…truth be told there was a dark and tragic side that is rarely spoken of......
~~~ Oh, those Victorians seemingly prim and proper on the outside but full of WILD intrigue on the inside. The idea of parlour mummy unwrapping, séances, bohemians, gypsies and secret societies. All part of the New Age movement that swept through society. Victorian Occult seems like a contradictory term today...however the occult movement was alive and thriving all over the country and even into the Colonies. This show will talk about the attraction, the stigma and the at times blatant jabs Victorians took at the church and conformity in society as well as some of it's most famous progenitors who's ideas are still with us today.~~~~~
Our guest for this eveing is Missus Mooney, who will discuss the history of this intriguing era. Her backstory is dark and tenebrous, as well as intriguing and engaging. She is a fascinating woman who is outspoken and slightly ahead of her time.
