How to talk to the Dead Ash Pryce Magician Ash Pryce presents an illusion filled, interactive look at a history of Spiritualism. Part magic show, part comedy, part rational inquiry this show has regularly packed venues at Edinburgh Fringes. Ouija boards, levitations and fun galore. Ash Pryce is a performer and director based in Scotland. He has written and staged several skeptically themed shows looking at myths & legends, ghosts, psychics and mediumship as well as producing full plays ranging from Faustus to more contemporary original shows in Edinburgh. He is the founder of Edinburgh Skeptics and runs what is believed to be the world’s first skeptical ghost tour every Fringe. Free entry with tea and biscuits All welcome

19:00 Category: External event featuring LSS member(s)[19:30] University of Leicester Sinfonia (ext event)
Our member Michael Sackin, who conducts the University of Leicester Sinfonia sends this announcement: Old Favourites and Unfamiliar Gems MENDELSSOHN Overture: Die schöne Melusine, Op.32 BRUCH Violin Concerto No. 1 in G major, Op.26 LEÓ WEINER Serenade in F minor for Small Orchestra, Op.3 SONJA GROSSNER Humoresque (version for small orchestra) HAYDN Symphony No. 70 in D major "This is a concert of delightful Classical and Romantic masterpieces, plus a short, quite light, work by a member of the orchestra who is a prolific composer. We welcome back Eleanor Wilkinson who has given memorable performances of various violin concertos in recent years with the Sinfonia. This time she plays Bruch’s G minor Concerto, a perennial favourite. An extremely appealing rarity will be the Serenade for Small Orchestra by the Hungarian composer Leó Weiner, and the concert ends with a wonderful, out-of-the-way Haydn symphony. The concert opens with Mendelssohn’s charming overture: The Fair Melusine."
