Ghost Hunt Knottingley Town Hall

Knottingley Town Hall is reported to be rife with ghostly accounts and this may well be due to the fact that not only does this Town Hall have it’s own history but it has been built on the site of a Medieval Monastery. Opened in 1865, Knottingley Town Hall has bore witness to tragedies and fatal accidents. Several accounts of strong paranormal phenomenon have been reported here; unusual sightings as well as unexplained whistles and disembodied voices. Others have accounted for the place having poltergeist activity, the stairs and cellars appear to have heightened activity. What will you experience on your Haunted Evening?!….

Split down into smaller (more vulnerable) groups, you will have access to all available areas at Knottingley Town Hall to see what you can experience after-dark. The team will be planning an array of experiments, from traditional vigils with a twist, to using all the very latest equipment. Whether you are a seasoned ghost hunter or this is your first time, they'll be something for everyone, even the chance for the brave to “go it alone”!…
