‘This has been a fantastic year for Supernatural Tours and Events who continue to grow through our relationships and the support from our brilliant staff and customers.
We have always strived to be unique in the market and this year will see some exciting new challenged’- Andrew Frewing-House, Events Director
Its been an incredible 13 years since we started our journey into the industry that is the supernatural! What started off as a small hobby group known as UKPRS quickly grew to expand with Supernatural Tours and Events in 2009, 10 years ago!
Its fair to say that over the years, the interest in the paranormal has grown massively. We started as a ghost hunting company and now we include a whole range of supernatural events within our portfolio.
But we’ve last for many years, one because of you, our customers. One of our other reasons is because our team are a family, passionate and dedicated to our company and giving you a unique experience and the best. We include all of our customers in our team on our ghost hunts and deliver fantastic theatrical events.
The boom of the paranormal has seen plenty of paranormal groups crop up but whilst we have lasted the test of time, the majority of others have come and gone. So what makes us different?
Firstly, our Directors Andrew and James have a brilliant friendships, often confused as brothers the two are extremely committed to the company, its events and you! They’ve worked in the industry for so many years and studied their craft.
You may not also know that we have two married couples in our team and two long standing couples on our team bringing that close family type bond.
Our aim has been and always will be to deliver professional events that you can get involved in! Its not about fame or money, its about the love for what we do!
Our advice to anyone going on these events (other than come with us!!) is to check! Has that company got a good reputation, insurance and are the a registered company (a legal requirement now).
Do they have a knowledgeable team and dedicated team. Running a paranormal company takes hard work and dedication and thats what we do here!
A strange fact to share is that many have come, tried to do their own group from us and it hasnt worked. We believe our team is special because we want you to be a part of journey.
We have some massive plans in store that you will love so come along and enjoy the supernatural journey with Supernatural Tours and Events!
If you have been on our Southampton Ghost Tour you would have come face to face with the unforgettable Ellen Wren. Her screams are loud enough to wake the dead…including herself.
But, Ellen Wren really was a resident of Southampton and in the Victorian era she was a crook, thief and yes, prostitute. But did she manage to change the course of history?
Wren was born to a poor family in Shirley at spent much of her life in the slums around Simnel street. She was forced into prostitution in a desperate attempt to make money.
Her life continued to spiral and in 1872 a local paper referred to her as an ‘old criminal’ referring to her constant brushes with the law for being drunk and violent.
It was in September 1894 that Wren became so drunk on gin that she suffocated on her own vomit in an attic on Simnel street.
Her body was left decomposing for several days until her landlord find her body when he came to collect the rent. It wasn’t discovered before because the area was so run down the smell was mixed up for dead animals and waste.
Her death grabbed the attention of the nation after it was dubbed ‘horrific’ and this lead to Southampton cleaning up its act and improving the housing.
Find out more about Ellen Wren on our monthly ghost tour!
Our line up continues to grow for our Ghost Hunt at Wookey Hole on May 18th with ‘The Trance’.

James has run many of these special medium experiments in the past and is excited to be bringing them back due to popular demand. But, you dont need to be a medium to benefit from the experiments. Everyone can take part!
There will also be an exciting remote viewing experiment too. Giving you more to enjoy!
The line up will continue to grow with two more additions to be announced at 8pm on Saturday May 11th!
Here at Supernatural Tours and Events our Supernatural Revolution has begun in a shake up of our Ghost Hunts. Yes, we have always strived to provide you with the best in events and long may that continue!
Yesterday, we announced the ‘Ganzfield Challenge’. An experiment pitting you against your nerves. Its a sensory deprivation test where all you can rely on is your feelings and nerves! More about that tomorrow.
Tonight is all about Seance: Evocation but what is it all about? There are several meaning of the word but we’ve narrowed it down to the one we need ‘evoking spirits’.
Yes for the first time, we are ramping up our seances by holding a full seance with a Medium where we attempt to conjure the spirits of the caves…..by name! This is not your usual seance……but, to find out exactly why, you’ll need to join us!
But rest assured, this is a real seance so lets hope it lives up to its reputation!
Wookey Hole tickets are on sale now! Jump on our website for more information!
So what was the Philip experiment and why was it significant in the paranormal field?
The chances are that you havent heard of it but it took place in 1972 and i was a seance with one aim…..to ‘create’ a persona known as Philip.
The experiment was set to show that a seance results can be completely fictional. To proof this they plotted out a life story for him. He was born in England in 1624 and was in the military. He was knighted when he was 16. He was part of the civil war and killed himself when he was 30 in 1654.
Whilst ‘Philip’ never existed, some of the events surrounding him was based on real events, such as the Civil war but with errors added in.
The aim of the experiment was to contact ‘Philip’ and get the responses above. First attempts to contact him in a seance failed. This lead to a change in conditions to create a traditional seance.
As time went on, the group managed to get results from ‘Philip’ including answers about his background, vibrations, noises and a table moving on its own! But, Philip never appeared to show himself to the group. Not surprising considering he was fictional!
As with everything in the paranormal there are always two ways to look at it. One argument is that it shows that psychology plays a part in activity, but it doesnt rule out the existence of ghosts!
Joel Whitton, who was overseeing the experiment summed up that Philips activity and responses were due to a subconscious mechanism by the participants whilst others have argued it lacks credibility.
Similar experiments have been run since them but with no results. So what really did happen in the Philip experiment? What do you think?
In true supernatural fashion the experiment has inspired two movies, the Apparition and the Quiet ones!
It’s fair to say that we are a little bit excited about our next ghost hunt which is at the world famous Wookey Hole on May 18th. Why the excitement I hear you ask?
The facts speak for itself, atmospheric cave chambers, total darkness, 45,000 of history and stories of witches and ghosts! What’s not to be excited about! Its a true ghost hunters dream!
This time we are pushing the boundaries with new experiments, a free session, mediums and ghost hunting to the extreme! The kind of stuff seen on the conjuring….if the ghosts play ball that is!
We want to see how brave you really are! So if you are brave enough, take on the challenge and get your tickets on our website now.
So whats ‘extreme’ about it. Alright, maybe that could be a step to far but we will have challenging experiments, medium experiments, sensory perception experiments, psychic experiments, solo vigils……and so much more!!!
