Event Finder

Join us on a 2-hour tour (and mini-investigation) of one of the historic Winter Gardens' most haunted venues - the Empress Ballroom!

The Empress Ballroom opened in 1896 and was one of the largest ballrooms in the world. During the Great War, the entire Winter Gardens site was thrown open to the naval and military forces stationed nearby. Early in 1918, the Admiralty requisitioned the Empress Ballroom to assemble gas envelopes for the R.33 airship.

There are so many sightings including that of a little boy in the Empress Ballroom. Who also wanders the top balcony and lifts up the base of the seats? This event is for those who are 16 and over; under 18s must be accompanied by someone 18 or over.


8pm - 10pm*
