Spooky goings on at Lincoln's Guidhall

A paranormal investigation team will spend the night in Lincoln's Guidhall this evening watching out for ghostly goings on.

The charity event will take place at the Grade I listed building, in High Street, from 8pm until 3am.

Joining the Secret Hauntings team will be the Mayor of Lincoln as well as members of the public who will be exploring some of the interesting accounts of paranormal activity that have taken place inside the historic building, including objects disappearing and reappearing, sounds of heavy iron locks being frantically moved, and the reported full apparition of a lady walking up the stairs.

"We're excited - and nervous - to be inviting a paranormal investigation team into the historic home of the Mayor of Lincoln.

"Since it was first used in 1520, the Guildhall has been the location of several ghost sightings and reports of other spooky activity. It's hardly surprising, considering it houses a number of pieces of impressive and historic regalia, including Richard II's sword.

"We hope it will be a night that won't be forgotten, and all for a frightfully good cause - all proceeds will go to the Mayor of Lincoln's chosen charities, Lincoln DialaRide and Development Plus."
