Why ghost hunting events shouldn’t return yet!

Throughout the last few months we have been very vocal about ghost hunting events not taking place but why do we think it’s not the right time to return yet?

Whilst some companies and groups have made the decision to resume public ghost hunting events we feel that this is the totally wrong decision and it’s not right for them to return until possibly October.

Yes it’s true all businesses are struggling but ultimately it’s your health that should always come first.

Furthermore in the dark, in sometimes small gaps, damp buildings it is just dangerous to resume public ghost hunts.

In low lighting or no lighting how can you maintain social distancing, cleaning etc. There’s no control and this means you could be putting both you and customers at risk!

The Government decided not to relax measures on August 1st meaning that conferences and indoor events including weddings have been impacted.

These are far safer events than ghost hunting events. Yes, the small groups who do this as hobby could do this if they can maintain regulations.

Furthermore, most insurance companies are not happy with ghost hunts returning and may not even cover them. Pandemics often come under ‘acts of god’ so your reputations, your company and you are at risk.

In summary, there will hopefully be a time when ghost hunts may return but it’s not now! So any company planning to do them in August and September should really consider. Keep you and your customers safe!

We rely on use of different venues so how can we ensure they are ‘covid approved’. Have you implemented a transparent policy and plan?

Whilst this may just be our opinion I think the majority of reputable companies won’t be hosting such event any time soon.

For those who are, if you think of buying tickets please think about the points above.

Ghost Tour Live! announced

We are excited to announce that we will be running our next virtual tour on Saturday August 29th 2020 at 7pm live!

The location of the ghost tour will remain a secret and we will give you plenty of teasers up until then.

We have also announced that the tour will feature all of our ghost tour actors for the first time five and a half months.

The tour will be free and live on our Like page and YouTube channel and will still feature a few scares, so be prepared!

Like many businesses, we have been deeply impacted by the Coronavirus and although restrictions have eased, we are still unable to operate our events. It is a turbulent time for everyone.

The aim of this tour is to also give a shout out to our GoFundMe campaign which is available on the following link:

We want to thank everyone for your continued support and we hope to see you again soon.

Thank you 🙂

Coronavirus update

Coronavirus continues to impact many businesses and families across the world.

Whilst restrictions continue to ease for many businesses, we sadly do not fit in the criteria to enable us to resume our events.

Whilst we are aware that some companies similar to us have started to resume we know that for ghost hunts in particular, the use of different venues would make it very hard to ensure social distancing.

Keeping our customers, clients and staff is our top priority. At current, our plans are to relaunch tours in September.

We will continue to monitor the situation and continue to update you.

Thanks again for your amazing support.

Events update….

Its been several months since the Covid 19 put a hold to our events. But as the country starts to open up from July, we have made the decision to postpone our events. But why?

Our top priority is always going to be our customers, clients and team. Whilst the threat of the virus continues to spread across the world it would not be safe enough to host events at the moment. There are a lot of things to consider.

Ghost Tours would be easier to restart due to the nature that they are hosted outside but it would be very hard for us to ensure social distancing throughout the event.

Our biggest challenge would be ghost hunts. Whilst we are aware that some companies have made the decision to continue ghost hunts in July, we feel that this is simply not safe and although like many businesses we havent had an income, health and wellbeing must always come first.

Adhering to Government guidelines is important. It is still recommended that social distancing is 2 metres but 1+ if it cant be. Both of these options rule out most experiments such as seances, glass divination.

The equipment would have to be sanitised after each physical contact, but so would all door handles, tables, seats, taps, cups, kettles….actually everything! In the dark or limited light this poses an issue because you can not be sure what anyone has leant against, touched or used.

Ghost hunts also use different venues which the company would have to publish a risk assessment to each customer for each venue. This could become tricky.

The next issue would be if someone was to spread coronavirus on the event and that the legal law is still very limited on numbers on events. There is so much to consider.

This why we feel that it is still too early for any ghost hunting events to start back up. Of course, when its times we will bring our events back.

Thank you to everyone for their support and please, as much as we all love ghost hunting give it time.

When we will be back?

Whilst we dont know when we will be back, we do know that we will be launching a new take to some of our events.

We are excited to announce that we will be bring our ghost tours to you live online and they will be ticketed events. It means for the first time ever, you can watch a full tour online from the comfort of your own home.

This means that we can ensure we maintain social distancing measures but still bring you exciting entertainment.

Like most businesses, our events have been majorly impacted by the coronavirus. We know that it is essential to keep safe, stay alert and protect everyone whilst enabling us to bring in the vital funds that keep our business delivering events.

We will continue to update anyone who has tickets on any important news about the events they have booked on to.

Thank you to everyone for your amazing support and we hope to see you …..or you to see us….or possibly both soon!

Update on June events

The safety of our staff and customers is always our top priority. We have carefully reviewed the guidance issued by the Government and made the sad decision to cancel our events in June.

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support and co-operation with such challenging times that have effected us all.

We will be contacting those who have booked tickets to any of our June events to offer them a transfer to any of our theatrical ghost tours over the next year.

We will offer a refund to those who wish to cancel their tickets to our June events as an alternative.

One again, thank you for your ongoing support and we hope to be back in July.
