March 14th 2009 — Charity Ghost Night in 13th Century Castle – just £35

This is in St. Briavels Castle, between Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and Oxford in the Forest of Dean. An excellent cause, a chance to get spooked, make new friends and maybe even see a ghost!

Thought this might interest some readers of this blog — Phantomfest are a volunteer ghost group  who are holding a charity ghost night in aid of the Youth Hostel Association on Saturday, March 14th, 2009, wher emember sof the public can learn how to hunt ghosts. Tickets are £35 including some simple food and accommodation in Youth Hostel style bunk beds, but a whole evening of fun ghosthunting style activities!  They do a number of these throughout the year but this may well be the last one in 2009 as the Castle is closing for refurbishment, do so try to make it. There are usually about 50 guests present for the various talks, ghost hunts and other spooky goings on, and I’m giving a talk or two as per usual.  You get to sit in the dark and maybe see something – in fact on my first ever ghost hunt there I saw something I still can not explain, and on a recent visit experienced two bouts of mysterious physical phenomena!

About Chris Jensen Romer

I am a profoundly dull, tedious and irritable individual. I have no friends apart from two equally ill mannered cats, and a lunatic kitten. I am a ghosthunter by profession, and professional cat herder. I write stuff and do TV things and play games. It's better than being real I find.

    Hi Chris! Enjoyed reading your thoughts about Helen Duncan, Darwin and weighing machines. The machine must be defective!

    Hope you are well. I thought I might find you on facebook but Hugh told me about this blog. Hope to hear from you.

    Best Wishes,

    Hi Martin, good to hear from you! Do you have my email address? If you can’t get it off this ask Hugh he can give you it – actually it is christjensenromer (at) – that is probably quicker! 🙂
