Head to Bristol Museum this Halloween for a special screening of Hocus Pocus. To celebrate their latest exhibition, Magic, we are hosting an evening of screenings that celebrate the supernatural. Before the film, meet our live performers, who always have a few tricks up their sleeves, then take your seats in the Museum’s incredible rear hall for a mystical cinema experience.
