IF YOU’VE ever watched TV’s Most Haunted, then now is your chance to find out what its really like to stay in a haunted house.
The local office of a medical research and care charity the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is on the lookout for any brave souls who would like to take part in a ghost hunt to help raise funds through sponsorship.
The event, on February 23 next year, will see 20 people spending the night inside Stanley Palace in Chester, each having a very personal experience as they search for the resident ghosts said to haunt the 16th century building.
Stanley Palace is one of Chester’s finest Elizabethan houses and is famous for its hauntings.
Its most renowned ghost is that of Elizabeth Warburton, known as ‘The Lady’. She died in 1627 and is said to have been seen walking around the building.
The night, which starts at 9pm and finishes at 5am, begins with a special tour of the building detailing real-life experiences and historical information researched by experts.
This will set the spooky scene before the group is joined by a team of experienced paranormal investigators and mediums who will use their knowledge to track down the most haunted areas of the building.
During the night there will be experiments in which everyone can take part, including full use of ghost hunting and psychic equipment.
To take part, anyone interested is asked to pay a reservation fee of £25 and raise a minimum sponsorship of £125.
