7pm - Midnight
ONE NIGHT ONLY
~INCLUDES BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR~
OVER 18'S ONLY
This Halloween transport yourself back in time to take part in a
deliciously dark evening of Spiritualism!
The year is 1870 and Victorian England is obsessed with communing with the dead.
We are cordially inviting a select number of people to this special gathering, in grand surroundings
with that very intent.
On the night of the year when the veil is thinnest...will we speak to the dead!
Upon arrival at Himley Hall, former home of the Earl of Dudley, you will pass through the large iron gates and follow the driveway straight up to the mansion doors where you will be met by your Victorian hosts. You will have the opportunity to absorb the surroundings and get a drink from the bar before being led to the seance room.
Entering this room marks the beginning of your journey into the past.
Following a sumptuous 3 course dinner, it will be time to hear all about the ghosts of Himley Hall during a lantern led walk of the grounds and hall with Paranormal Investigator and Historian Jayne Harris who will regale you with tales of Himleys ghosts and hauntings.
Behind the Scenes
The ghost stories will continue inside the Hall as Jayne leads you behind the scenes, to rooms usually off limits to the public.
You'll take a look at forgotten spaces whilst hearing the tragic tales from their past.
What may be lurking in the shadows in these locked away rooms?
Following the tour guests will have the opportunity to indulge in some traditional Victorian parlour past times.
Will you take a seat at the Talking board?
Or will you visit our Palm Reader for a glimpse into your future?
Maybe you'd prefer to allow our Mystic to draw your tarot cards?
How about trying your hand at Phrenology?
(activities and readings are included in ticket price!)
"For there is nothing between the
Living and the Dead...especially on this night"
To close our evening you will be asked to retake your seats for the seance.
The room will darken and hearts will beat a little faster as at this point proceedings are handed over to the spirit world as we attempt contact.
All guests are reminded that we cannot be held responsible for what may happen during the seance! We are experienced professionals, however sometimes the spirit world still surprises us!
Caution is advised to anyone of a nervous disposition.
Our evening will be called to a close at the strike of Midnight.
THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF HIMLEY HALL AS PARANORMAL GROUPS ARE USUALLY PROHIBITED

ABOUT OUR VENUE
Himley Hall was a moated manor house, which stood next to the medieval church and village. For over four centuries it served as a home to the Lords of Dudley and their knights.
In 1645, King Charles I encamped in the grounds on his way to defeat at the Battle of Naseby during the English Civil War. In 1740 the old manor house was demolished and a replacement built in the classical Palladian style.
