Combining his love of storytelling, stage magic, family history and the paranormal; Ashton will give rare access to some of the objects he has collected over the years. Influenced by the ghost stories and weird fiction of the early 20th century, 19th century spiritualism and the paranormal; ancient objects will show their secret powers, spirits and entities from other worlds will make their presence felt and colourful members of Ashton’s family show that things are not always as they seem.
‘Mysteriosa is a lovely show. Imagine short stories of Edgar Allen Poe with curious spiritual magic. Ashton is such a charming performer, a great storyteller and a skilled magician.’
