Looking for ghosts at The Royal Hippodrome Eastbourne.
Mysterious footsteps coming from the stage, A black mass in the stalls, Doors which open and close as somebody unseen walks though and the piano music caught on a recording while no pianos were being played are just some of the ghostly accounts of this spectacular victorian theatre.
The Royal Hippodrome Theatre opened on Thursday 2 August 1883. At the time Eastbourne was emerging as a highly fashionable destination, encouraged by regular visits from the Prince of Wales.Its original name “Theatre Royal and Opera House” survived for about 20 years but from around 1904 it became The Royal Hippodrome Theatre. The reason for the name change is unclear, but it seems to mirror a change in style and use.
We will be in search of confirmation of the ghosts that haunt The Royal Hippodrome. In small teams the mission will be to collect evidence using traditional methods such as séance, glass moving etc right up to the latest ghost equipment using infrared, electro magnetics and so on. No experiment is compulsory as we do our best to identify who the ghosts of The Royal Hippodrome are and why they haunt this location.
The cost for the night is £44 per head, 8.00pm for an 8.30pm start. The night will finish at 1.30am, by which time you will have had the chance to experience what it is like to be a paranormal investigator, and had the opportunity to try a mixture of traditional techniques as well as modern technology to try to decide for yourselves – WHO HAUNTS The Royal Hippodrome?
