PARANORMAL NIGHTS AT THE CASTLE
Saturdays 9th September & 4th November 2017
9pm until very late!
Led by psychic medium Glenn Forbes, we will the 900 year old castle which includes the 13th century round tower, dungeon and 12th century basement at Appleby Castle.
Much activity has been found inside this Norman castle which is one of only a few in England to have been lived in continuously since its construction.
On Saturday 11th March 2017, we had an amazing paranormal evening at Appleby Castle. We first used the rods and crystals to answer questions and then we began to use the message board. As the group was small we were able to go to the old chapel in the castle where we were contacted by Lady Anne Clifford’s veterinarian and his underling who confirmed that Lady Anne was a very kind lady and could recall the stables being built. The original stables apparently had six arch ways in them. We also ventured into the Keep for the first time. No sooner had we placed the message board on the floor than the glass began to move and we were contacted by five people who were buried underneath the keep. There was a young girl of 21 and four children. These people must have lived in the 12th century. At the end of the evening our psychic medium read everyone’s personal aura and reported to them.
Our Saturday evening Comedy Nights are terrific fun!
Come with friends for a great night out!
