Houdini ghost hunt at the Eastbourne Hippodrome

It looks like seance season is already upon us. First out of gate is Sussux Darkside who will hold a special "Ghost Hunt with a Houdini Inspired Victorian Seance" at The Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne (UK) on September 30. Houdini himself appeared at the Eastbourne Hippodrome in late April 1905. Will he come back for a return engagement?

Our Standard ghost hunt, in which groups will investigate all areas of the theatre, using our extensive range of the latest ghost hunting equipment, however this one has a twist; we will literally ‘Set the Stage' for a traditional style Victorian Séance, using the same type of séance tools used by Harry Houdini, Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Price, to try to contact the spirits of this delightful theatre and possibly, the spirit of Harry Houdini (and other characters) who famously performed in this theatre. Each group will take a turn in a true mix of modern and original ghost hunting methods. 
This one might not be for the faint of heart! 
LOCATION: Royal Hippodrome Theatre, 118-112 Seaside Road, Eastbourne, BN21 3PF
DATE: Saturday 30th September 2017
TIME: 8:00pm to 1:00am

  1. Thank you for featuring our event! Sussex Darkside. p.s. we will let you know if the great man comes through.

    1. Hi Diny. Yes, please let us know if you hear from Harry! Good luck. :)

  2. Well, we called for Harry in our ouija session, which said 'yes' that Harry was there, so we asked some personal questions and the board got some of them wrong, so, for a moment, our hopes were flying high but alas, it was not the great man.

    1. Dang. Well, he is elusive! But it sounds like you still had a fun evening. Thanks for the report. :)
