Medium takes on UKs most haunted theatre
When Halloween is around the corner—why do people’s fascinations with ghosts increase? This is certainly what Eastbourne’s oldest theatre has found. There has always been an interest in ghosts at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre, Eastbourne which celebrates its 130th Anniversary this year. So much is the demand that the theatre now has a designated Ghost Tour Co-ordinator for its bookings. Between the end of September and the end of the year at least 5 groups have already booked late night slots to carry out their own paranormal investigations at the theatre. Under the watchful eye of the co-ordinator these groups will be carrying out various tests and filming to see if they can catch a glimpse of one of the theatre’s ghosts. Staff who have worked at the theatre have claimed to see one ghost in particular, a veiled lady in the Dress Circle—will she make an appearance for these trepid explorers of the unexplained?
A man—not unknown to the world of the paranormal is Derek Acorah who on the 22nd October at 7.30pm is himself appearing at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre. Derek Acorah needs no introduction. The pioneer for Spirtualism and mediumship on television, he is arguably the world’s most renowned Spirit Medium having demonstrated to many hundreds of thousands of people in theatres across the UK. Now he is coming to a theatre famous for its own ghosts and demons. Will he be able to cope? There is only way to find out.
