Theatre of Ghosts Ghost Hunt – £49

adc theatre ghost hunt

Access all areas at the ADC Theatre, the oldest university playhouse in the country with Fright Nights Cambridgeshire! Join us on stage, back stage and even under the stage at an extremely spooky and reputedly haunted new venue for Fright Nights. Dare you descend the ladder into the darkness and down to the cellar, the area which staff call ‘The Museum’ where the sound of laughter and merriment can often be heard? Walk through the blue doors and in to the corridor where a tragic incident took place… In 1933 a great fire raged through the theatre and it burned to the ground while a tramp was locked in the foyer, the place where he often rested his head for the night. He had no means of escape and there was no hope of rescue. He is said to wander the Theatre and his footsteps are often heard along with doors opening and banging shut. The staff always leave the blue doors unlocked so the tramp is no longer shut in, and can roam the building freely as he pleases.

Dare you join the Ghost Hunt at this great location which is only available once yearly!

The ADC Theatre is located right in the centre of Cambridge and is owned by the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) ever since 1855 when they first formed. Not much is known of the building before this time, although it is documented to have been a coaching Inn. When the CUADC first came about, they would rent rooms in the Inn which is where performances would have also taken place. The club members had raised enough money to buy the freehold in 1882 and the building eventually became the ADC theatre.

The impressive building boasts an auditorium which holds 228 audience members. Sometimes a seat may be pressed down without anybody psychically sitting there! Strange phenomena has been reported by staff and visitors alike. Ever since the great fire in 1933 which completely gutted the entire building and the night when the poor homeless man very sadly lost his life.

It took 18 months to rebuild the Theatre and was reopened in 1935, remaining unchanged until a redevelopment program began in 2002. This resulted in major modifications and improvements to all public areas and the Theatre’s façade was also completely changed.

The Theatre is still very much loved and in regular use with two shows per evening all year round, except one month of the year.

Don’t miss the opportunity of participating in a unique ghost hunt at the ADC Theatre!

During our summer 2015 visit we experienced some amazing paranormal phenomena including the sound of a fanfare, disembodied voices, guests cameras seemingly taking photographs of their own accord and a hooded figure appeared in one of these images (available to view on our facebook page)

 

Please note: Over 18’s only, No pregnant women allowed, unsuitable for disabled guests due to the nature of the building. No accommodation provided. For more information please see our terms and conditions. This event is organised by Fright Nights Cambridgeshire.
