As a voluntary, non-profit private club, The Ghost Club does not have premises or any paid staff and so investigations and other events are organised by members of the Council in their free time.
We work with historic houses, heritage sites and unusual locations to host overnight investigations into paranormal activity throughout the year, with the aim of conducting serious research, observing and recording phenomena for posterity. Our investigations are not for entertainment purposes or for thrill-seekers. Naturally, attendees of investigations are expected to abide by any rules on the night, showing due respect to the site and fellow members.
Details of investigations are sent via email and are open to all members - if an investigation becomes over-subscribed, names are drawn on a lottery basis to give everyone a fair chance. We hold around ten investigations a year.
Important Points to Note
We do not perform spirit clearances or exorcisms
The use of Ouija Boards is strictly prohibited, particularly because the majority of sites will not allow their use.
The Ghost Club does not charge its members to participate in investigations, but sometimes the site charges a fee for allowing our investigation (any fees payable will be detailed in the original email).
Will there be an investigation local to me?
We cannot guarantee an investigation in the local area of all members, but all attendees are given instructions to enable travel and we gather at a local pub beforehand to prepare. We are always keen to hear suggestions from members for new sites to investigate.
Where can I see the results of investigations?
The results of our investigations are published in our quarterly newsletter and on our website - see below (both available to members of The Ghost Club).
If you know of a site that you feel should be investigated, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
