Ghost Fest at Newcastle Castle is set to return! Following a successful launch night, an extra evening has been added on Saturday, 12th October and we're expecting another night of frights! This is guaranteed to be an unforgettable evening that will unnerve even the bravest of ghost hunters.

Ghost Fest: The Return will begin in the Great Hall of the Castle Keep with a special screening of Carnival of Souls (1962). The horror film tells the chilling the story of a young woman who ends up the sole survivor of a fatal car accident through mysterious circumstances. Trying to put the incident behind her, she moves to Utah and takes a job as a church organist. But her fresh start is interrupted by visions of a fiendish man.

Then as it begins to get dark, ticket holders are split into smaller groups for a 4-hour long paranormal investigation of the Castle Keep guided by Spiritus Paranormal. With years of experience and having conducted more than a hundred paranormal investigations, the Spiritus Paranormal team will allow guests a chance to use the equipment and personally take part in the investigation.

Spiritus Paranormal have had the pleasure of previously working with Most Haunted's Barry John and are keen investigators at the Castle Keep. For the very brave, they are also in possession of a Ouija board.

Built by Henry II between 1172 and 1177, Castle Keep is well-known for being very active as unexplained mists, dark shadows, and orbs have been captured on camera. Those who have visited the castle witnessed the chanting of the monks coming from the Queens Chamber and the ghost of the “Poppy Girl” who was beaten to death by male prisoners in the dungeon below.

Tickets are available for £48 per person on the Newcastle Castle website here.
