A Séance is an organised event in which a medium attempts (or purports) to communicate with spirits in front of an invited audience. Séances had their heyday in the late 19th century, but were largely discredited by many exposures of hoaxery and the suggestion, not always without foundation, that the darkness of the Séance was a cover for a sexual liaison of some sort - this accusation forms the core of the Katie King saga.
