Autumn Ghost Vigil
Saturday 17 September
"Spend the night investigating the active paranormal. Explore the Manor and discover it's ghostly history, entering reputedly haunted rooms and taking part in ghost vigils led by a guest medium. For serious enthusiasts and the curiously brave. Tea, coffee & cake provided."
If you don't mind losing a night's sleep this might be fun and I'm sure I'm as fond of a good ghost story or film fright as anyone; but I wish the museum had been slightly more careful with its wording. A museum, whatever avenues it explores to attract funds and footfall, is at heart an institution of learning. It should take care not to give credence accidentally or otherwise to the reality-challenged of this world.
