This was Chris Conway's first visit to this former police station situated in Gainsborough, on our previous events we had experienced some fantastic examples of spirit activity, and this begged the question would history repeat itself?
We cannot begin describing the events of the night without firstly thanking both John and Maurice, the two volunteers of the nick theatre for their help and assistance on the smooth running of the event.
The night began with a guided tour of the building by the ever so amiable Chris Conway, who demonstrated to the group which ghostly inhabitants he could sense through his mediumistic abilities, Chris mentioned that in one of the cells he picked up the spirit of a gentleman who refused to give Chris his name. In the theatre Chris communicated with a gentleman spirit by the name of Fallon, Chris stated that there was also a female spirit called Rosey who had a behavioural tendency to try to harass and intimidate the ghost hunters in presence.
So with all this amazing information Chris had picked up, we had a short break where Chris spoke to our large number of ghost hunters about all things of a ghostly nature. It was now time to begin the paranormal investigation into the ghostly realms of Gainsborough Old Nick Theatre.
We commenced with a large group vigil in the theatre room with many ghost hunters claiming to see the face of a haggard old woman staring at them, this description matched the one Chris had given regarding Rosey earlier. In a human pendulum experiment Sarah and Stephen started to move backwards and forwards in response to the answers to our questions to Rosey, Chris described Rosey as being cantankerous and quite an intimidating character. Chris stated that Rosey would definitely be making her presence known during the course of the event.
With this in mind we then decided to split up into smaller groups and go our separate ways to the vigil area we were going to attempt spirit communication. In the theatre room a group were carrying out a s�ance with Simply Ghost Nights medium Stuart, with the group using the ouija board they made spectral contact with a female spirit by the name Marie, the group asked Marie questions during the course of the vigil. Marie informed the group that she had worked at the building many years ago in the 1890�s and that she had two children and had being married to a police officer.
The group then attempted a table tipping experiment, where the table tipped in turn to each ghost hunter to the excitement of Stevie, Jo, Cheryl, Hannah and Martin, however what happened next had the group absolutely in a state of pandemonium, Stuart asked the group to stand in a circle holding hands around the table approximately 2-3 feet away from the table, he informed the brave ghost hunters to ask for the spirits to move the table with no one touching it, after a couple of minutes the group suddenly squealed and shouted in disbelief as the table moved only a matter of inches with no one touching it or closer than 2-3 feet away. This demonstration of the power and strength of the ghostly inhabitants of the Old Nick definitely amazed the group that witnessed this episode.
In a group vigil with Chris and Simply Ghost Nights Rosey and Jo in the men�s cells, the spirits displayed a tremendous amount of power in a table tipping experiment that Rosey said the table tipped to and fro with no ones hands on the table itself, to the consternation of Chris and our group of ghost hunters. This was the second reported incident of tables moving by themselves, which is something the team have witnessed over the many years in the holding paranormal investigations, but this still conjures up many unanswered questions regarding the awesome nature of the paranormal.
After a short break and buffet in which Chris had entertained our brave ghost hunters with his ghostly tales it was time to commence with the event once more, and in the theatre room yet again a group of ghost hunters were being entertained by Fallon who Chris had described earlier. Andy, Simply Ghost Nights paranormal investigator described in the de-brief how Fallon in a table tipping experiment had moved the table to and fro in response to the questions. Mark, Simply Ghost Nights paranormal investigator said that the group of Chelle, Ali, Sara, and Jo were amazed as they had only their finger tips touching the table. In an ouija board experiment with Stuart a little girl at the age of nine made her presence known with the planchette, the girl called Alice claimed to have lived at the station years ago, however she acknowledged yes, when asked if Queen Victoria had been on the throne when she was alive.
In an experiment using the Franks box a group introduced themselves and to their incredulity, heard the names John, Steve and Dawson, the last name mentioned left Simply Ghost Nights medium Stuart speechless, as it is in fact his surname. As the group carried on further questions they heard yes and no answers to the disbelief of Michelle, Tania, Jo, Stevie, Mark and Sophie.
As the event drew to an end the feedback we received from our fearsome ghost hunters was all positive, we had again witnessed so much paranormal activity at this little theatre and ex police station.
