Your Ghost Hunt at Mayer Hall

A local historic building with a number of strange occurrences going back decades.

Mayer Hall in Bebington, Wirral is a haunted location that flatters to deceive. This quaint hall has been the source of local intrigue for decades, with many strange happenings reported here.

You will have full exclusive access to this location, which has never been investigated by any other groups before!

Built in 1878 by world-renowned philanthropist Joseph Mayer (1803-1886) on the foundations of a dwelling that dates back to the beginning of the 18th century. It was established as an art gallery and community hall, and the location has been a pillar of the local area ever since.

On your ghost hunt with Haunted Rooms, together with our friendly team of investigators, you will join others on structured vigils, where you’ll have the chance to use some paranormal equipment and join in on group vigils such as Ouija board sessions, seances, and more.

Haunted Rooms events are real paranormal investigations, we leave out the fluff, we do not have actors, and we don’t fake activity.

Our team can’t wait to welcome you to this incredible building and to share a night of ghost hunting that you’ll remember forever.

Spots will fill up quickly for this one, so hurry and book now!

Deposits are available for just £20.

Mayer Hall (1878) is a former Art Gallery Museum and Community Hall that was gifted to the people of Bebington by Joseph Mayer a local philanthropist upon his death in 1886.

It forms part of a legacy that included the Mayer Free Library and Park (1869/70). The three were managed through The Mayer Trust until 1933 when the buildings and Park were handed to Bebington Council as the Trust had run out of funds to sustain the Legacy.

Mayer Hall was built around 1878 on the site of the village bakery. It has been a Museum/Art Gallery and served as the Council Chamber until 1971 when it closed and transferred across the road to the new Bebington Town Hall.

The Mayer Free Library started life as a small farm holding. The original building was built in 1716 and can still be seen today. It was transformed into the Library in 1869 /70, opening its doors in 1870 along with the Park.

The Park was built on the farmland and was named Library Walks later to become Mayer Park. The Library was closed in 1971 and the books moved to the new Civic Centre where it remains to this day.

The Library building reopened as a home to the Bebington Voluntary Services shortly after but it closed again around 2013. The Library building remains closed to this day. In 2014 the Wirral Borough Council decided Pennant House (Joseph Mayer’s home), Mayer Hall, and the Mayer Free Library building could be sold.

The Community responded by forming the Joseph Mayer Community Partnership, a group who are committed to saving the buildings and bringing them back into the Community for their use as a Community Hub.

Although snacks and drinks are provided, you’re welcome to bring your own. There are also facilities to make both hot and cold drinks, which are provided also.

And of course, bring your phone/camera with you, the more pictures we have the better chance we have of capturing something!

Other than that, just yourself and an open mind!

Our event starts at 8.00 pm but you can arrive at the earliest 7.30 pm. Structured investigations will end around 12 am, at which point you will have the opportunity to investigate this location on your own using the techniques and information you have been provided with.

The event is not a sleepover, so it’s recommended you book accommodation nearby if you’re travelling from further away. There are a number of good options for you to choose from being in the city centre.

You will have the chance to look around the hall before the event to familiarise yourself with its layout. Shortly before the event kicks off, we’ll run you through a quick induction and safety briefing, followed by a short talk and introduction from our team. You’ll then split into smaller groups with your family and/or friends if you’ve come together, and we’ll begin our vigils for the night!

If you have your own paranormal equipment we encourage you to bring it, if not we can provide them free of charge. Snacks, refreshments, and treats will be provided at intervals throughout the night, and we’ll have facilities to make hot and cold drinks too.

We do endeavour to have mediums and sensitives with us for every event, although circumstances out of our control can sometimes prevent this. Anybody that has sensitive abilities we encourage you to come forward, as it only increases the energy and enjoyment for all in attendance.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, and if you’re feeling particularly brave you should give a lone vigil a try, as well as joining in with our table tipping experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
