Fancy the idea of spending the night at this Matlock Baths landmark investigating the numerous claims of it’s hauntings?! It’s no surprise this old theatre is supposedly rife with paranormal activities due to it’s varied and energetic past. Many people have felt the sensation of being strangled down in the cellar where some staff refuse to enter alone. The sound of ghostly children have been heard in various parts of the building, some have been lucky enough to see the shadowy figure of a lady peering from one of the upper windows. With so many unexplained goings on, what will happen at The Grand Pavilion on your Haunted Evening?!…
Ghost Hunts with Haunted Evenings combine traditional ghost hunting vigils with more innovative experiments. You could soon be finding yourself taking part in a lock down experiment or trying your hand at using a thermal imaging camera during one of the kit vigils. For the more daring, take up the challenge of a lone vigil to really creep yourself out! A night in this historic location will soon find yourself in very small groups or on your own on the closest ghost hunting experience out there!….brave enough?!
History of The Grand Pavilion
This somewhat “seen better days” Edwardian building was built in 1910 to serve the ever increasing demands of tourism to this Derbyshire Dales popular Spa town. The Grand Pavilion was built to host a diverse range of entertainment, from theatre productions, community events, dances and military bands. During both World Wars, The Grand Pavilion served it’s time supporting the war efforts before continuing along it’s path as being a centre for entertainment. With the fall in theatre goers, the Grand Pavillion was, for awhile, a nightclub known locally as “The Pav” before being taken over in 2012 by a Charity trust whose aim is to restore the building to it’s former glory.

Event Review / Spoiler!!
Although not so grand as it once was, the Grand Pavilion at Matlock Baths still stands proudly along the main front of this old Spa Town and is hard to miss!. We were lucky enough to return last night with a fabulous bunch of guests to see what we would all encounter from the otherside.
Muffled voices, cold spots, shadows and figures sensed, devices triggering… all added up to it being another busy night at this old landmark!
H I G H L I G H T S
HUMAN PENDULUM : During group 2’s human pendulum experiment in one of the upper rooms, a 37 yr old female spirit came forward who informed us (through yes/no responses) that she was murdered by a male suspect who allegedly worked at the Pavilion. This same male is potentially a sinister spirit encountered by other groups during last nights investigation around the stage area, established to be called William. (William confirmed by previous experiences/ staff). During the same pendulum experiment, the wheel of a bike moved as well as cold spots felt. 2 people were effected during the pendulum which resulted in almost all answers correlating without either guest being aware of the others responses. Awesome!
During a further Pendulum vigil (group 3), a further female spirit was sensed, aged 43, who passed from a horse & carriage “accident”.
OUIJA BOARD : A strong Personal connection occurred during Group 1’s Ouija board session with further validation via 2 k2’s (EMF meter) that spiked to red on command, certainly an emotional and impressive moment of spirit connection! During another Ouija board session, guests picked up a female spirit believed to be called Kelly, who came forward earlier during a human pendulum for the same group (2).
EQUIPMENT : The presence of a male spirit named William was sensed around the stage area and underneath the stage by groups 1 and 3. The stage area certainly felt quite uneasy during the evening!. During one vigil, a guest who braved entering one of the under stage rooms alone after voices were detected on our recorders, yelped when the sofa he was sat on moved. An audible “yeah” was heard by the guest when a team member had asked if the spirit preferred women, although indecipherable, a response was also captured simultaneously on our voice recorder.
For Group 2, a couple of guests called out and asked for any spirits to whistle and reported back they had received a direct whistle back in response. Voices were muffled on all recorders in this area so sadly no clear EVP’s captured this evening, however, voices were stronger around the stage stairs area and under the stage.
Time flew by last night and the investigation ended with the feeling that we had only just scratched the surface! If you ever visit Matlock Baths, be sure to pop in to the Grand Pavilion, it really is a place we recommend a visit to!
On behalf of last nights team, thank you to all guests who attended last night, your willingness to work together and get stuck to all the experiments made for a fabulous investigation!
