The Dark at Gloucester City Museum

Event ended

While the slave trade may have been abolished in 1807, the horror of 18th century slavery is being brought back to life at a new exhibition in Gloucester.

Organisers say that The Dark, the latest exhibition at Gloucester City Museum, will immerse brave visitors in a powerful audio environment where the echoes of virtual ghosts can be heard in a haunted soundscape.

Based on real events and real people, the ghosts whisper their story into visitors’ ears – who will have to rely only on their hearing. The innovative production was created by Bee Arts Community Interest Company in partnership with Gloucester City Council and Gloucestershire African-Caribbean Association.

If you visit The Dark, make sure you also take in the archaeological finds, fine and decorative arts, and natural history specimens including dinosaurs and fossils, representing Gloucester’s rich heritage – there has never been a better time to visit Gloucester City Museum and Art Gallery.
