Your Ghost Hunt at Lancaster Grand Theatre
Ghost hunts at the Lancaster Grand Theatre are paranormal investigations at their finest. Whether you’re an experienced paranormal investigator or a beginner, Lancaster Grand Theatre is an absolute must!
The hauntings of the Grand Theatre in Lancaster have been a source of intrigue to people for generations, with a number of past performers believed to reside here.
This unassuming Georgian theatre admittedly doesn’t look grand from the outside, however, once you step through the doors into the auditorium, you can’t help but feel the anticipation of all that has gone before.
One of the most common sightings is of the Grey Lady, believed to be Sarah Siddons (the Sister-in-Law of Charles Edward Whitlock, who built the theatre in 1781 together with his associate, Joseph Austin).
Sarah was a Welsh actress and was the most well-respected tragedienne of the 18th century. She was most famous for her portrayal of the Shakespearean character, Lady Macbeth, a role that she made her own, and a role she performed at the Grand Theatre, Lancaster, in 1795.
Sarah has been witnessed on many occasions, sitting in the stalls passing in front of the auditorium, or walking across the stage. Actors, staff and visitors have all made reports of being watched from the stalls, but nobody is ever found.
As well as Sarah, a former male actor known as Harald is believed to haunt the theatre. His spirit has been picked up by investigators on numerous occasions.
The backstage area and dressing rooms have a reputation for making people feel very uncomfortable, with several people forced to leave the area, and some refusing to even go back there at all. Disembodied footsteps are often heard in this area, as well as the stage.
It’ll take a brave soul to carry out a lone vigil in one of the dressing rooms, where past investigations have resulted in people being touched in response to their questions.
