galofjusDo you have nerves of steel to take part in an Overnight Ghost Hunt at the terrifying Oxford Castle?

Join Dusk Till Dawn Events on an all night investigation with Celebrity Medium Barrie John from Most Haunted.

celebrity_medium_barrie_john_dusk_till_dawn_eventsBarrie John was Guest Medium for series 10 on Most Haunted for living TV as he investigated Oxford Castle along side Yvette Fielding,Karl Beattie and The Most Haunted Team.

Dusk Till Dawn Events have access to Oxford Castle and all its haunted areas including the castle mound – the place of execution for four hundred years!

Oxford Castle is a very imposing Georgian building with a Saxon St George’s Tower and is thought to be one of the most haunted buildings in the country. Throughout its dark and foreboding history, the Castle has served time as a royal residence, a centre of justice and as the county Gaol, hidden from public view behind an impenetrable five metre high stone wall until its closure in 1996.

There have been many reports of paranormal activity at the Oxford Castle site including:

* The Murderer Mary Blandy was tried and hanged at Oxford in 1752, her ghost has been see a number of times walking the Castle Mound
* In the 1970s a group of inmates held a seance in one of the cells sparking poltergeist activity, in the end of priest was called to conduct an exorcism
* A strange white mist has been witnessed rising up a flight of stairs, two prison guards watched in horror as it faded in front of their eyes.
* In the past the Castle has been used as a film set including for the film “The Italian Job”. More recently during filming, a group of film extras heard unidentifiable shouts and screams echoing around the main buildings. On at least two occasions there has been unexplained physical damage to various items stored at the prison.
* Security guards have long been uneasy doing the rounds at night and the most terrifying apparition was spotted by one guard and his dog on a nightly patrol. The dog stopped and growled while its master saw two black figures in front of him, days later the dog died of fright!

May be you will discover the truth behind the Oxford Castle curse (the Black Assize of 1577) when several hundred people died within the space of five weeks and of the terrible conditions endured by the prisoners and of great escapes!

Don’t miss out on the chance to experience the confines of the 18th century Debtors Tower and prison D – wing and the very dark and chilling atmosphere of the 900 year old underground Crypt not forgetting the climb to the Saxon St George’s Tower which is now open to Dusk Till Dawn Events.

Halloween at 21 Henley Street Stratford Upon Avon Ghost Hunt – Friday 30th October 2009

henley_streetAre you feeling brave enough to join Dusk Till Dawn Events on a ghost hunting experience on Halloween at a real haunted house?
Come with us and step through time as we dare to venture into 21 Henley Street one of the Most Haunted Houses in Stratford-upon- Avon. The Building itself which dates back to 1541 is half timbered and is 3 storeys high which has been opened up to the property next door to it so there are many eerie nooks and crannies to investigate on a fantastic night of Ghost Hunting.
21 Henley Street now home of The Witchcraft and Wizardology Museum , Stratford-upon-Avon is housed in a beautiful example of Elizabethan architecture that first appears in historical records in 1541. The building mentioned both by Harriet Beecher Stowe and Rupert Graves, is now the only remaining section of the famous White Lion Inn that still stands.The building now a wonderful,mystical witchcraft museum is crammed full to the brim of interesting spooky memorabilia and is only just a stone’s throw from Shakespears actual birth place.
In 1785 members of the household of the ill fated Monarch Louis XVI of France stayed here and in 1806 the Prince Regent (later George IV of the United Kingdom) stayed in specially prepared apartments. During the English Civil War the building was taken over by parliamentary soldiers who are said to haunt the upper levels to this very day whispering about secret plans.
It is also home to a much darker and more blood curdling secret. During the late 1700’s a series of very brutal attacks took place on prostitutes in bedrooms on the upper floors of the Inn. These attacks have left an indelible spectral imprint on the building that can be sensed by mediums and sensitives to this very day.
Guests visiting here find 21 Henley Street to be a most strange and creepy location which comes as no surprise with its small creaky stairways and dark mysterious rooms such as The Nursery,The Apothecary,Haunted Chamber and Priest Hole if you enjoy being scared then this night is for you!
Ghost Sightings are said to be abundant here with as many as 40 resident Spirits all who have made their presence known to visiting Mediums along with strange noises, aromas, lights and cold blasts of air onto people’s faces this really is a great opportunity to have a go at ghost hunting in a fantastic haunted location.

Bolling Hall Bradford Overnight Ghost Hunt – Saturday 17th October 2009

bolling-_hallBolling Hall is one of Bradford’s oldest buildings, and has reference to the manor of Bolling in the Doomsday Book which was compiled in 1086

Situated just a mile from Bradford city centre and surrounded by gardens, Bolling Hall was for many years home to two important land-owning families.

Parts of this wonderful building actually date from medieval times, which are packed full to the brim with history so it comes as no surprise that paranormal activity happens on a regular basis here and has had as many as 20 reported sightings of ghostly apparitions from visitors and staff alike!

For over five hundred years Bolling Hall has been home to many Bradford families such as Tempest,Lindley and Wood. During the Civil War the household supported the Royalist cause, and the house provided a stronghold during the ‘siege of Bradford’.

The Hall Itself was then presented to the City of Bradford in 1912 after falling into disrepair and was then passed onto the City to be opened as a period house and museum.

Bolling Hall is well known for being the most haunted building in Bradford with its first Ghost sighted way back in December 1642 by the Earl of Newcastle; who was awakened by feeling of his bedclothes being pulled off him!

This location has even been visited by the Most Haunted Team who found the building to be very paranormally active on their investigation capturing on film a Childs Crib rocking backwards and forwards all by its self!

There are many fantastic rooms and eerie nooks and crannies to investigate in this very haunted building such as the Blue Room which Staff whilst at work at the Hall sense feelings of unease as if being watched by someone or something and a Gent wearing a long black coat has been seen in this area also.

A sighting of a Lady dressed all in White has been reported in the 1940’s, she was described by wittnesess as floating in mid air across the room and disappearing into the fireplace!

Heard regularly at this location are loud footsteps along With Ghostly voices and heavy breathing within the darkness not to mention heavy doors opening and banging shut in response to questions asked by an unseen presence as you can see this really is an event not to be missed!
