LUTON LIBRARY THEATRE

Luton is believed to have been founded by the Anglo-Saxons sometime in the 6th century. Its name first appears in the 8th century as Lygetun, meaning "town on the River Lea"

In 1907, Vauxhall motors opened the largest car plant in the United Kingdom in Luton, during the Second World War, it built Churchill tanks as part of the war effort. Despite heavy camouflage, the factory made Luton a target for the Luftwaffe and the town suffered a number of air raids. 107 died and there was extensive damage to the town (over 1,500 homes were damaged or destroyed).

Opening in 1962 Luton Library Theatre is a traditional proscenium arch theatre with the capacity to seat up to 238 people. Located on the third floor of Luton Central Library, Luton Creative Culture hosts a hugely varied programme at the Library Theatre, including touring professional shows, amateur dramatics and music concerts, offering the opportunity to tick off a range of cultural challenges. There are unconfirmed reports of a worker being killed during the construction of the building and a cleaner unexplainably going missing but no records can be found to corroborate these stories.

 

Please arrive at 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Finish time is 1am.

 

We've been invited back to host a ghost hunt at this amazing building, steeped in history and numerous accounts of spirit activity from both staff and guests!

Extract taken from Hertslive.......
"With not just one ghost said to be haunting this Hitchin hotel, the stories and sightings vary suggesting that there could be a number of spirits lurking.
If you think you can handle it, ask to stay in room 10. It is said that a women reportedly makes herself known in this room.
One man woke to the feeling of a woman laying across his face trying to suffocate him, he was so scared that he ran out of the hotel unable to stay the night and didn't return until the next day.
In the 1800s, Lord Havisham committed suicide in the hotel due to his large gambling debts and is said to still haunt the building. There have been reports by staff members who claim to have witnessed a monk walk across to the bar and help himself to a drink."

On my walk round a few years ago, I did encounter the lady in one of the rooms, laughing (possibly under the influence!). I saw a huge orb in one of the en suite bathrooms, shoot across the room and had a really strong feeling of someone with me when I entered the ballroom. In the bar, adjacent to the ballroom, I believe there to be a spirit of a young boy.

A small groups of us were able to take part in an investigation for halloween a few years ago and had some amazing activity, both in room 10 and the ballroom. The ouija board was so active and we believe it to be rhe spirit of a gentleman who didn't want his "lady" speaking to other men!

Arrival time is 7.30pm and we will be eating at 8pm. Please let us know, when ordering your tickets which choice of food you would like. The choices are...
Fish and chips
Chicken in a basket
Butternut risotto


We will be starting our investigations at around 9pm, once we have given you a run down of the equipment we'll be using and put a protection prayer in place.
At the end of the night you'll be given the opportunity to use our equipment and go off on your own to investigate.

Helen, our tarot card reader, will be available all night, at an additional cost.

We intend to finish at 1 am.
 

 

 

 

 

 

After our great success at The Mallard we have been asked to do an event at another Harvester restaurant in St Albans, The Ancient Briton.

St Albans dates back to roman times and there has been a building on this site for several hundred years, with history of stables as well as a saloon bar. It takes it name to commemorate the people who lived and worked in the city for 2000 years and the stone placed outside the building is there to represent this. 

We were asked to organise an investigation here after the former manager, Becca, showed us some CCTV footage of a pint of beer being pushed over in the bar area, without anyone around it. The staff also feel apprehensive when going down into the cellar, which spans the entire floor space under the building. On our walk around both Keith and myself felt a presence down there. 

Why not join us on our first outing to this historical place and see if we can experience some activity with us. A 2 or 3 course meal is included in the price and we will contact you 2 weeks before the event to per-order your meals.

Arrival time is 7.30 pm and we hope to finish at 1 am.

Following an exciting ghost hunt in April, we have made the decision to return to RAF Manston for another night. We encountered an abundance of activity in every area we explored during our investigation. We had emf meters, rem pods, sls cameras and laser grids all going off together for most of the night.It's been some time since any of us have encounteres such a high level of activity. Come and join us for this next visit. There are only a few tickets available for this event as it seemed to work so well with the numbers we had last time. Don't miss out!!

6 pm - 12 am.

The oldest part of the museum, The Tudor House, situated in Church Street, Aylesbury, dates back to the 1470's. It was owned then by the Fraternity, who also owned almshouses & hospitals and carried out charitable work. In the 1750's it was refurbished in the Georgian style and again in the 1990's much as how we see it today.

There are stories told by those who have worked in the building and other paranormal groups also report strange things happening within it's walls. 

One the night we will have sole use of both the Georgian Room & The Tudor House, the attic rooms once used by the head master when it was a school and other area's where the exhibitions are on show. The absolute gem on the night though is access to the underground cellar, the original wine cellar which has a network of tunnels leading out into the Aylesbury Market Square and nearby church. These are blocked up now but would have been an escape routes back in the day. We sat in there for a few minutes on our walk round and had all the lights turned off. You literally couldn't see your hand in front of your face!

 

The arrival time is 8pm and we will finish and leave at 1am.

The building that we know today as The Harvester, in Hemel Hempstead, started it's life as a posting house, according to census records dating back to 1851. These would be houses or, in this case an inn, where horses were kept that could be rented out. They would be used as post offices are today, to distribute the mail. Back in 1861 it was known as The Railway Hotel and had provisions to stable 7 horse. Between 1855 and 1912, the census records show us that it was run by various generations of the Dunning family.

 

We were invited here for an investigation, after some of the current staff had experienced strange goings on within the building, the most frequent one being the hand dryer in the ladies toilets turning itself on late at night when the restaurant was being locked up. There was also a recording of someone, in the carpark, walking about and then disappearing, on the cctv footage. Our last investigation proved the building to be very active with lots of emf meters going off, ouija board work and seeing someone's hair being tugged!

Tickets for this event will include a buffet supper and the price of that is included in the price. All you pay for on the night are drinks behind the bar.
