Witch way to London

Cornwall’s Museum of Witchcraft and Magic will be popping up in the capital in November. Founded in the 1950s and located in Boscastle since the 1960s, the Cornwall museum boasts the world’s largest collection of spooky artefacts. From November, a selection of these supernatural objects will be hosted by the eccentric Viktor Wynd at his Museum of Curiosities in Hackney.

The exhibition features a witch mirror, a waxen curse poppet doll, a dark magician’s altar and various recipes for spells and incantations. Also on show are images from the original founder’s collection made by photographer Sara Hannant – including a life size goat-headed god and a fortune-telling cup and saucer. The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities is at 11 Mare Street, London E8 4RP.
