The White Rock Ghost Hunt

January 11th 2020

The White Rock Pavilion Ghost Hunt
A ghostly apparition of a female figure hurrying about the building, described as wearing an old fashioned nurse uniform and seems to be carrying someone in her arms. Long skirt, white apron, Cap. She’s seen walking through walls.

Poltergeist activity has been reported in the theatre. Theatre goers have seen an old man wearing a raincoat vanish into thin air. Performers have had experiences in their dressing rooms which gave them the distinct knowledge that they were not alone.

On the night
We will investigate in small teams visiting various different areas, some of which are behind the scenes where we as small teams will conduct a series of experiments ranging from the traditional to some new modern theories on how to detect ghost activity.

There will be a refreshments break where all refreshments are free to our guests including hot and cold drinks, there is also a chance for anybody who enjoys a smoking break to get a quick fix before heading back to the base room to resume the night. At the end we will hold a de-brief.


The following day you will receive and invitation to some special group pages where we will examine all of the collected data and present it back to you in the following week, by the end of the week we will know just what we captured on our night at the White Rock in Hastings.

The cost for the night is £45 per head, 8.15pm for an 8.30pm start. The night will finish at 1.30am, by which time you will have had the chance to experience what it is like to be a paranormal investigator, and had the opportunity to try a mixture of traditional techniques as well as modern technology to try to decide for yourselves – WHO HAUNTS The White Rock Theatre?

The original East Sussex Hospital was replaced with the White Rock Pavilion which was opened by Edward, Prince of Wales in April 1927. The pavilion underwent a further re-modification in 1937 and again in 1985 when it was renamed the White Rock Theatre.

From its very beginning Hastings Borough Council ran the Theatre. As the years went by and the Theatre continued to run at a loss, the council decided to close the Theatre down. This announcement was met with the fierce opposition from local people and groups rallied round in support of the White Rock. In May 2002 Clear Channel Entertainment, took over management of the venue. On February 1st, 2009, HQ Theatres took over as operator of the White Rock in partnership with Hastings Borough Council.
