Overnight Ghost Vigils at Muncaster

There has been a growing demand from members of the public to work with the scientific vigil research team based here at Muncaster Castle and as a result of this we are now able to offer a number of places on the next Muncaster vigil.

Date to be confirmed

Members of the scientific research team, who have been researching the "hauntings" of Muncaster since 1992, will be leading the vigil. They will explain the rationale of a scientific investigation, and will train participants in the use of various items of technical equipment and research methods before supervising the overnight investigation in various locations of the Castle.

This is your chance to meet like-minded professional researchers and take part in serious on-going research at the country's most prominent location. Many of the team's research findings have been published in top peer-reviewed international scientific journals.

The proposed programme is as follows*:
5.00pm  - Registration and afternoon tea in Creeping Kate's Kitchen
5.30pm - 7.30pm - Education Room - Talk on the modus operandi of the vigil
7.30pm - 9.00pm - 2 course supper
9.00pm - 11.00pm - Training in the use of technical equipment to be used on the night. Set-up and test equipment in various locations.
11:00pm - 4:00am - The Vigil
4:00am - 8:00am - Sleep, if you are able!
8.30am - Breakfast followed by debriefing
10.00am - Depart Muncaster Castle

*Please note that given operational constraints the timings and locations may vary slightly from the programme above.

The cost will be £99 per person and includes afternoon tea, an evening meal, tea/coffee throughout the vigil and a full English breakfast.

You will need to bring your own sleeping bags and warm clothing. You must comply with all instructions while participating on the event. This is a scientific project, part of the long term research into alleged "paranormal" activity at Muncaster, and we do not encourage the use of séances or other similar activities. All equipment is provided, though you may want to bring your own pen / paper for note taking. If you do wish to bring your own cameras or the like, the scientific research team must be made aware of this at registration, so they can explain to you any limitations in their use. By signing up for this event, you agree to co-operate with any media companies/agents who show an interest in covering this event, whether journalists, TV reporters or similar. We may not know until shortly before the event whether or not there will be any media interest in the vigil. Note that the presence of the media should not interfere in any way with the investigation process or your enjoyment of the event.
