What we're about

For the past two and a half years I have been collecting ghost stories of the British Museum from current and former staff for an oral history project. These stories of unquiet objects, haunted spaces and inexplicable occurrences are much wilder than I'd first anticipated.

While this oral history project is ongoing, and some of the stories have been published and the project has been exhibited in Rotterdam and in London, I have begun to give regular tours of the British Museum, telling the stories pertaining to that which is on display and accessible to the public. The tours have been greatly enjoyed by all in attendance.

The next tour is scheduled for 3:45pm on Thursday the 7th of March. The tour is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes in duration. The cost of the tour is 10 pounds per person, payable on the day. Only 15 spaces are available per tour, if there is demand I'll schedule more. If only a few commit, it will still run.

I will be waiting by the benches by the information desk to your right as you enter the Great Court at 3:45pm, wearing a light green jacket. Please text 07870882232 if you're planning on coming and are running late or if plans change.

Noah Angell is an artist and storyteller of international repute, recent projects include "For the good wind" commissioned for the Polar Museum in Tromsø, Norway, Ghost Stories of the British Museum exhibited at Rib exhibition space in Rotterdam and Tenderbooks in London, and an upcoming documentary film on Connie B. Steadman of the Badgett Sisters.

For the past two and a half years I have been collecting ghost stories of the British Museum from current and former staff for an oral history project. These stories of unquiet objects, haunted spaces and inexplicable occurrences are much wilder than I'd first anticipated. While this oral history project is ongoing, the project has been exhibited at Rib exhibition space in Rotterdam and Tenderbooks in London (who produced a publication on the project which is currently sold out), I have begun to give regular tours of the British Museum, telling the stories pertaining to that which is on display and accessible to the public. The tours have been greatly enjoyed by all who have attended. The next tour will be at 3pm on Sunday the 26th of May. I will be by the visitor information desk on the right as you enter the Great Court wearing a dark blue denim jacket with leather collar and can be reached at[masked]. Please RSVP early so as to avoid disappointment & punctual so as to not delay the group. We may go to the pub after.
