Where better to spend Halloween than inside the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, listening to some spooky stories? ...let's hope the exhibits don't come to life and kill you (don't worry, they won't — it's mostly pots and rocks)

Your hosts for the evening will be the Egyptologists John J Johnston and Amara Thornton, who will choose a suitably spooky corner of the museum to read a few (true) tales about living mummies and other Egyptian beasties.

P.S.: If you die of fright then you won't get a refund.
