Walpurgis night, or “Enclosure of the Fallen” commemorates the time when Odin died to retrieve the knowledge of the runes, and the night is said to be a time of weakness in the boundary between the living and the dead.The Last Tuesday Society intend to exploit this opportunity for a damn big party and lots of dressing up- dress code is the beautiful and the damned/ the dark side of beauty.(There is prize Gin at stake..)Lost in Beauty, Primrose Hill’s luxury beauty boutique, will be on hand to provide all the wicked witches and handsome devils with deadly fashionable make-up & special effects; professional make-up artists will provide cuts, bruises, blood and scars or fashion inspired looks incorporating this season’s hotter than hell gothic trends. Catherine Arnold will kick off the night with her talk on Necropolis: London and its dead.This blend of archaeology, architecture and anecdote includes such phenomena as the rise of the undertaking trade and the pageantry of state funerals; public executions and bodysnatching- leaving no headstone unturned.
