Consumption of Alcohol: Whilst we have no objection to a glass of wine, or a beer being consumed with an evening meal, our rules are simple – if you have consumed too much alcohol to drive a car legally, you have consumed too much to attend one of our Ghost Walks/Ultimate Paranormal Dining Nights.

  • Had an amazing night vigil. Mark led the event brilliantly. A truly inspiring place with some awesome spirit residents!

  • Hi Mark

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing time that Chase and I had on our ghost walk Friday night (9th November). It was my second time at the jail and I loved it as much as the first, but it was a whole new experience for Chase. He went from being nervous, sceptical and unsure at the start, to loving every minute of it! We are both now looking forward to our next visit in the new year. We captured some great pictures and some containing images we cannot explain. The workshops were great and your knowledge of the jail and it’s history were fascinating…even if we had not witnessed anything spooky, the tour alone would have made it a great night. We looked into Chase’s family tree once we got home and you were 100% right…from his name to the fact he was in WW1 and in the artillery! We had no knowledge of him at all, so to find out so much detail was amazing! Thank you again and we look forward to joining you on another ghost walkl soon

  • Fantastic night I loved the gaol !! My only regret is that mark wasn’t able to stay the night! Sorry about the glow in the dark onesies Haha will be back next year 😀

  • Hi Mark and Sonya.
    Wow, still feeling overwhelmed from our experience at the Ghost walk (30th October ’13) Would just like to say a massive thank you for taking us on such an amazing journey. I was honestly on the fence about the paranormal when we arrived, but walked away with a completely different opinion. I can honestly say hands down it was the most brilliant experience i have ever had.
    Iv’e never had so many different emotions run through me in one night and I am so glad I went through with it. Thank you for sharing your gift with us and showing us that the paranormal isn’t just about things going bump in the night. Nothing was as we expected, it was so much more and we have been carrying on some of the exercises here at home. I just cant put into words how thankfull I am for you giving us the opputunity to experience everything we did that night. I have been non stop telling everyone about it and advising people to come along, we shall defo be back again.
    Thanks again guys. We really really enjoyed it.
