The Ghost Club - Paranormal

The Ghost Club founded in 1862, and is the oldest organisation in the world associated with psychical research. Our prime interest is that of paranormal phenomena associated with ghosts and hauntings.

Overnight investigations are held at sites throughout the year with the aim of observing and recording phenomena. Naturally, we expect our members to abide by any rules on the night, showing due respect to the site and fellow members. It should be stressed, that we do not perform clearances or exorcisms, and the use of Ouija Boards is strictly prohibited, particularly because the majority of sites will not allow their use. Our aim is to conduct serious research; our investigations are not for entertainment purposes of for thrill seekers.

Details of investigations are sent via e-mail and are open to all members. If an investigation becomes over-subscribed, names are drawn on a lottery basis to give everyone a fair chance. Prospective members should be aware however, that the Ghost Club cannot guarantee an investigation in your immediate area, but we do try to furnish members with basic travel details, i.e. train stations, bus routes or local maps or directions. If a member has a particular site local to them, that has experienced recent phenomena, and may be agreeable to an investigation, I am always interested in hearing about it and will endeavour to follow it up with a view to conducting an investigation. Naturally, some sites do charge a fee that is payable by all participants, but The Ghost Club itself is a non-profit making organisation and does not charge its members to participate in investigations.

The Ghost Club does not have premises or any paid staff. The Council is made up of voluntary members around the country who put in a lot of hard work and time, free of charge to arrange these and other events for the whole membership.

Regular meetings are held at The Victory Services Club in central London and are free to all members. Out-of-town GC Members can stay overnight at the VSC at preferential rates. Speakers cover an array of subjects and viewpoints on paranormal phenomena associated with ghosts and hauntings. Members generally retire to the bar after the meeting and this is an excellent chance for members to get to know each other and exchange views and stories. Meetings are held about once a month on a Saturday at 2pm.

In addition to investigations and meetings we generally have a couple of social events throughout the year, including a Christmas Party, which is always very popular.

Members are also sent quarterly newsletters covering many topics. Book reviews, investigation reports, and letters to the Editor, paranormal news, technology updates to name just a few. Our Newsletter Editor is always very happy to hear from members who have an article they would like to be included in these.

The Ghost Club is an informal, democratically run club of genuinely open-minded members and it should be stressed that unlike many similar organisations, interested sceptics are always welcome. The Club, although based in the UK, has many members from all over the world.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please download a Membership Questionnaire from our website, and send to the PO Box above with your subscription payment. (Please be aware that the PO Box is emptied every 7-10 days, and then the applications are processed, all successful and non-successful applicants will be notified, but please allow plenty of time).
