The New Year’s Eve Séance

Ryton Masonic - Gateshead

Monday 31st December, 2018

10pm - 2am

£40 Each


This amazing building dates back hundreds of years to what was once an innocent manor house to the first Mayor of Newcastle.

In 1920 twenty six of the Ryton Masonic Brethren met to discuss the formation of a new lodge. It was to be named Ryton Holy Cross Church which had been built 700 years earlier in 1220. Those Brethren were to become the founder members, and still it is used by the Masons this day.

It is believed the current owner won’t enter the building alone as ghostly apparitions have been reported along with the feelings of uneasiness. Staff have caught photos of orbs entering the room the disappearing through the wall. A story of a murder on the stair well which was covered up as an accident leads us to believe this is a unsettled spirit trying to communicate with the living. And a further death of a Mason by accident in the corridor, is this the spirit seen wandering upstairs? Join us to find out

£65 Each - DEPOSIT OPTION AVAILABLE

 

Number 30 East Drive in Pontefract seems like an ordinary semi-detached 1950's house on an unremarkable road. But this house has stood empty since the Pritchard family fled when there 13 year old daughter was attacked by a poltergeist who dragged her by the throat up the stairs. Mum Jean, dad Joe, son Philip, 15 and then 12 year old Diane were dumbstruck with terror as pools of liquid oozed over the kitchen floor, green foam gurgled out of the taps and objects were hurled through the air by unseen hands. A priest was called to perform a exorcism but the violent spirit pushed him down the stairs.

 Will you dare to join us ?

I've done a couple of investigations with Pitch Black now and would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting an interesting experience. They make you feel comfortable in surroundings you wouldn't usually find yourself in. I'm looking forward to doing more hunts with them.

I stayed at the park hotel in Morecambe last night with the pitch black investigation team. This was my first ever time doing anything like this, I was apprehensive and a bit sceptical but all I can say is what an amazing night. The whole team were fantastic, very welcoming, helpful, informative and well organised. During the investigation we had access to all the equipment and were encouraged to take lead on call outs, Ouija board (which was a real eye opener for me) and all other aspects of the investigation. I would like to thank all the other guests who were in my group, you all played a part in making my experience a memorable one. I'm not going to mention the things I witnessed and experienced (and believe me there was a lot) as I feel the best thing I can say is "book up with this team and see for yourself" as I have came away with a lot to think about. Well done and thank you to the pitch black investigation team, all your hard work and effort paid off (I will definitely see you all again)

We had a brilliant night at East Drive, Pontefract last night. The team were very welcoming and professional. We had a great laugh as well as the serious stuff. We had noises, lights, a bunch of keys swinging on their own for about 10 minutes, a random ball being slung over the banister in slow motion, a heavy propped up mirror tipping over and a grand finale of a child's pushchair, a doll and a ball being slung down the stairs!

It was a fantastic night. Thankyou to Carrie and the team-we'll definitely be booking again �
