What to Expect

What to Expect

Firstly a relaxed, fun time with like minded individuals! No matter if you come alone or as a group, you will leave having met some new people and maybe made some new friends on the way. 

On your ghost hunt with RIP-UK, you will have exclusive access to this location. Our event starts at 8.45 pm, we ask that you arrive with time to spare ideally around 8:30pm. The event will start with a relaxed greeting, health and safety briefing and shortly after we will venture forth into the unknown.

Please note this is not a sleep over event, if you are travelling a considerable distance we recommend you book a hotel room, there are a number of choices in the area.

The RIP-UK promise… this is REAL ghost hunting! As a team we promise on our events we fake nothing, we actively ask our event venue hosts to ensure any and all devices in the venue that could distract or cause false positives are turned off. We set up nothing more than the refreshments! This means what happens, happens but we will not make something happen falsely. We do endeavour to create every opportunity for genuine activity through vigil guidance and experiements.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, if you’re feeling particularly brave you could try a lone vigil, join others on a ouija board or perhaps even sensory deprivation experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
