St Mary's Guildhall Ghost Hunt
Join Haunted Evenings as we return to Coventry's most haunted building, one of only a few Tudor constructions left in the heart of this historic city. The Guildhall holds a wealth of history and it is no real surprise to discover that many who spend time at St Mary's Guildhall leave having sensed a real fear of unease in several areas of the building.
In small groups, you will have the chance to spend the night carrying out a variety of new and more traditional vigils with access to an abundance of paranormal equipment. Spend time in the magnificent Great Hall, undercroft, Mary Queen of Scot's Chamber and Mercar's Room to name but a few!. What will you experience on your haunted evening?
Paranormal Activity at the Guildhall
St Mary's Guildhall has always had a reputation of being very haunted so be warned! A monk was captured on camera over 30 years ago during a civic event and has been reportedly seen and sensed on numerous occasions. Many people have unexpectedly experienced feeling emotional, with an overwhelming sense of sadness, in one particular room of the Guildhall (bursting into tears for no reason). A little girl has been seen by members of the public here, along with sightings of a grey lady, are these the dark shadows many have witnessed here? The team have picked up several unexplainable voices during our overnight investigations here too….what ghostly experiences will you encounter?!.

Event Review / Spoiler!
ST MARY’S GUILDHALL | COVENTRY | 12.01.19
Last night Haunted Evenings revisited St Mary’s Guildhall, one of Coventry’s finest buildings tucked away opposite the ruins of St Michael’s Cathedral in the City’s historic quarter.
This location has countless rooms to break off into, with many of the areas varying in age, dating back over hundreds of years, from the 15th Century “Great Hall” to much later additions built in the 19th Century for the city council courts.
Some of last nights highlights :
We seperated down into 3 groups and spent the evening investigating all 4 corners of the location. 2 of the 4 planned experiments this evening were based around glass divination, with most activity experienced in and around the Drapers Room. For two groups, personal connections were experienced in this area whilst no personal connections were made at all on board number 2 near the upstairs main hall “Armoury” room. Whilst communication was slow on the board in this area, after much patience from the guests, the glass did knock and nudge a handful of times either at the same time as a k2 meter spiked or just after. Amazing! Goes to show that sometimes some of the best moments are the most subtle!.
EVP’s were captured in several of the rooms investigated, infact it never took long to establish we were not alone, however, most of the responses picked up on our voice recorders were indecipherable. A few classic but muffled “get outs” were heard, along with a possible “Arthur” and the word “Bastard” faintly picked up on another!.
Some of our equipment became lively in certain areas, one such hotspot was the Armoury Room where a Rempod went off after being left on a table for some 20 mins or more. People experienced cold spots at similar intervals to kit triggering in the side chamber too!
K2 meters were going off strongly in one of the rooms off of the Great Hall, however, the way they were triggering suggested this wasn’t spirit energy and subsequently debunked.
On behalf of all last nights crew, thank you to everyone who attended last nights paranormal investigation at this fantastic location. You were all such a pleasure to meet!
