Past event – Eerie Evenings Ghost Event, Dudley, West Midlands


Eerie Evenings Limited is the second-oldest paranormal events company in the UK and was formed in 2005 with the remit of offering members of the public the opportunity to investigate haunted locations. Since then, brave guests have joined the team on hundreds of investigations at some of the most paranormally active buildings in the Midlands, but Dudley Castle certainly takes some beating in terms of atmosphere and activity.

Your evening begins with a welcome drink of traditional mead, followed by a tour of the castle and grounds by a DZG member of staff, bringing to life the history and hauntings of this historic monument. You will then watch a demonstration of platform mediumship from Eerie Evenings’ trusted and experienced clairvoyants. Guests will later be split into smaller groups to stake out the paranormal hotspots. There will be plenty of opportunity to use specialist ghost-hunting equipment and take part in ‘contact experiments’ such as séance, dowsing and table-tipping. Eerie Evenings pride themselves on the authenticity of their events – there are no tricks or sleights of hand and certainly no-one waiting to jump out of the shadows! Instead, they offer the opportunity to experience a completely genuine ghost hunt whilst being looked after by a team of experienced paranormal investigators and psychic mediums.

As well as the public nights available throughout the year, Eerie Evenings also offer an unusual alternative for private parties and corporate events. Fancy something different for a hen party or an unforgettable experience to celebrate a birthday? Maybe you run a business and feel your employees could do with a spot of team building? Whatever the occasion, Eerie Evenings can cater for your private event, in their experience you don’t have to be an avid ‘Most Haunted’ fan in order to enjoy a spot of ghost-hunting!

Now in their seventh year, Eerie Evenings are inviting new and returning guests alike to join them as they investigate Dudley Castle’s haunted heritage. Their events are certainly not for the faint-hearted as there is the very real possibility of experiencing genuine paranormal activity, but whether you are a believer or sceptic, thrill-seeker or merely curious, Eerie Evenings are sure to give you a night you will never forget!

Christmas at Beaulieu is a time of magic with fun, activities and entertainment for all the family.

Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538, is a place of enchantment at this special time of year. Children can dress up in period costumes while in the Lower Drawing Room there will be carol singing around the grand piano for everyone to enjoy.

Visitors can talk to characters from Victorian times to discover what life was really like ‘Upstairs and Downstairs’ at Christmas time and warm themselves in front of the yule log in the hearth of the great fireplace whilst enjoying a glass of hot fruit punch. The splendid Victorian-style decorations around the house and the magnificent Christmas tree in the Upper Drawing Room add to the flavour and charm of the season.

Take a stroll around the grounds and you’ll see one of the largest outdoor Christmas trees in the New Forest, adorned with seasonal decorations.

In the National Motor Museum, the Victorian theme continues as visitors can see what driving was really like in those early days. Don’t miss the ‘Wheels’ pod-ride transporting you on a journey through one hundred years of motoring history, plus World of Top Gear Enormodrome and the BOND IN MOTION exhibition. To complete the day, take a ride on the high-level Monorail or hop on the Veteran London Bus to see the Beaulieu sights.
