Seriously Strange – UK Paranormal/Parapsychology/Scepticism Event, September 2011

Anyway from 1981 to 2011 is thirty years, and ASSAP are putting together what looks to be a truly fantastic conference to be held this year at the University of Bath, on the 10-11th September. The anniversary conference is entitled Seriously Strange, and looks perfect for both the really hard core paranormal research types who are interested in ganzfeld experiments & Bem’s precognitive habituation, through the most ardent ghosthunter, and certainly given ASSAP’s always critical and sceptical approach Sceptics. Forteans will love it too, from what I can see of the line up. Continue reading

Roll up, roll up, for the Cheltenham Paranormal Festival!

I’m doing a few bits, helping out with the Ghostwalks on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from outside Tourist Information, and on Friday doing the Prestbury one, and will doubtless be appearing at the Ghost Hunts where the general public can come along and do a “Moose Flaunted” style investigation, complete I assume with gadgets and cries of “did you hear that?” I have spotted the odd article in the press recently – the BBC cover the Festival here – but have no idea how my last event is selling – the talk Confessions of a Ghosthunter, priced at £3, at the Playhouse Theatre, Saturday 5th February 2011 from 7.30pm to 8.15pm. Yep, just 45 minutes, hopefully informative and amusing!

Hopefully the Festival will raise some money for good causes, bring some more visitors to Cheltenham, and be great and an interesting time. I have not been involved in the organising, and don’t really know any more than what the public does, but from the website I have realised that this is actually a lot more interesting than I first thought. I was surporised at the breadth of events – I have listed some of my favourites below!
