Ghost In The Machine takes over computer museum

Thursday, 24th October 2013.

Cambridge's new museum, which started life in Haverhill, will be opening its galleries after dark on Thursday, October 31, for a night of spooky, fun-filled events centred on the theme of ‘Ghost In The Machine’.

Preceding the evening’s entertainment, a series of Halloween-inspired technology workshops, suitable for children aged from eight upwards, will be held throughout the day.

In these sessions, led by experts from the TV and film industry, visitors will help create props and a haunting Halloween soundscape for the night’s events.

Using computers, microphones and digital synthesizers, they will learn how to record, layer and mangle sounds to build atmospheric effects.

There will be even creepier goings-on later in the evening. For those brave enough to venture into the museum after dusk, the doors will creak open at 6pm for Ghost In The Machine Spooktacular.

With all kinds of unimaginable surprises lurking in the darkened surroundings of the museum’s galleries, visitors are invited to Trick or Treat, if they dare, amongst all the creepy-crawly games and ghosts in the machines. Aimed at everyone over the age of eight, this event concludes at 9pm.

At 10pm the late night Ghost In The Machine Experience opens for those aged 18 and over, who dare step into the hidden and eerie world of abandoned computers with their rows of blinking lights, randomly playing the gruesome games of yesteryear.

The museum will be decorated with all things scary as will the staff - visitors are encouraged to come in fancy dress to give others an extra fright!

Children must be accompanied by an adult. All events must be pre-booked online at www.computinghistory.org.uk
