The Chillingham Castle Scarefest!
Sunday 23rd October, Chillingham Castle 

Are you brave enough to spend the night in one of the UK's most haunted Castle's?

Northumberland's Chillingham Castle is notorious for being one of the Most Haunted Castle's in the UK, and it's clear to see why with it's dark history and resident spirits who haunt the castle grounds. The castle has played host to many TV shows including Most Haunted as well as Alan Robson's Night Owls and so we are thrilled to launch our *EXCLULSIVE* Chillingham Castle Scarefest taking place on Sunday 23rd October 2022!

Just in time for Halloween, our Scarefest Challenge will welcome a group of brave souls who dare to brave an evening at Chillingham Castle, exploring parts of the castle with the highest reports of spiritual activity such as the Chapel and Oubliette Dungeon. North East Medium, Hayley Hope, will guide challengers throughout the evening and try to connect with some of the resident spirits like the Blue Boy and Lady Mary Berkely. With exclusive access on the evening, there will also be an opportunity to spend time alone in castle locations for the ultimate ghost hunting thrill!

So if you're a believer or a sceptic, we want to hear from you if you'd like to part! If you are successful in nabbing a spot on this unique and chilling experience, we ask that every participant raises at least £300 which will support us in urgently funding the equipment for children on our waiting list. If you’re not scared of the prospect of an evening at Chillingham, then fundraising shouldn’t scare you either! We’re here to help you every step of the way and know that your family, friends and loved ones will likely throw sponsorship at you if they know you’re spending a night in a haunted dungeon…

Registration Fee: £40

Fundraising Target: £300
