Luton Library Theatre Ghost Hunt, 15th June 2024



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.
