Matlock Bath’s Grand Pavilion is said to be a hot spot for paranormal activity, owing to the building's rich and varied history. So much so, that several ghost hunt events have been held in the building, and an episode of the television show Most Haunted was also filmed there.

This is the first ghost hunt in the Pavilion hosted by MJL Paranormal, which was set up a year ago by directors Michael Morgan, James Morgan and Lisa Carrington.

The three directors had always had an interest in the paranormal, and had each been on several ghost hunts before deciding to set up their own company.

Michael said: “I’ve always worked in places that have got reputations for being haunted, so I’ve always had an interest in it.

“For me it's a scientific interest. I’m not 100 percent sure what it is but its something that you can’t explain.”

MJL has been hosting monthly ghost hunts and that the company is starting to build a consistent customer base. They are also keen to encourage newcomers to come and experience their ghost hunt events. You must be 18 and over to attend.

Michael said: “Anybody with an interest or curiosity, or even people that don’t believe should come along. We’ll see if we can change your mind.”
