HOUDINI SEANCE HISTORY:
Houdini died on Halloween in 1926 from complications related to acute appendicitis.

On his death bed he had told his wife, Bessie Houdini, and close friend, confidant and mentalist Joe Dunninger, that he would make every effort to communicate with the living and established a secret code to guarantee proof if indeed he was successful.

Then every year after his death, an official séance was held to see if he could cross the veil and prove the spiritual afterlife existed. Unfortunately, he never came through.

After 10 years Bess Houdini declared it over; however, Houdini’s brother Hardeen took the torch and continued the tradition, but there was never a sign from Houdini.

When Hardeen passed away, his protégé and magic collector, Sidney Radner was directed to continue the séance and did every year until his death at 1991 in 2011. He was accompanied by his good friend Tom Boldt for many years in this endeavor.

Now Sid’s son, Bill Radner, along with Tom continue the tradition and have selected a small group of Houdini experts and enthusiasts to be part of the “Inner Circle” and sit at the séance table each year. In the past, these séances have been small and private; however, as the interest in Houdini has only grown, The Official Séance was opened to the public in 2012.

Is this the year Houdini will break through with his secret code? Find out!
