Scientific Ghost Vigil

Scientific Ghost Vigil


We offer public places in just one or two scientific ghost vigils each year, to allow members of the public to meet and work with the scientific vigil research team based here at Muncaster Castle. The next vigil's date is close to Halloween on Saturday October 28th 2017.
The research team lead the vigil, explaining the rationale of a scientific investigation and giving training in 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 haunted location.

See our webpage for more detail on the vigil plus booking terms and conditions. If you are interested in taking part, then please contact us by telephone or email.

Places are limited and in demand but you can join the mailing list for future vigils should it be full already.

As an alternative to this experience, we also offer an overnight ghost sit in the most-haunted Tapestry Room. Available most of the year and open to small groups (an absolute maximum of 8 but fewer is better), it's a fantastic team-builder for friends and colleagues or a real alternative to your average stag or hen do!
