The worldwide podcast hit, as heard on BBC Radio Four, explores the true story of Britain’s strangest haunting. And now it is coming live to a theatre near you!
Number one drama series across the world, The Battersea Poltergeist is a multi-million download, genre-busting phenomenon, mixing documentary and drama to tell the incredible and terrifying true story of the 1956 haunting of the Hitchings family in south London at the hands of a poltergeist they nicknamed Donald.
At this exclusive live event, you can meet the show’s creator, writer and journalist Danny Robins, Evelyn Hollow, a Scottish writer and paranormal psychologist who holds a Master of Research degree in Paranormal Psychology and Ciaran O’Keeffe, a psychology professor who has appeared on TV’s Most Haunted and Jane Goldman Investigates.
They’ll delve deeper into this paranormal cold case, bringing the investigation to life on stage, sharing exclusive footage of Shirley Hitchings and other witnesses, and revealing some stunning (and chilling) new evidence from brand new witnesses only just discovered and not featured in the podcast series. Could they hold the final clues to solving this supernatural mystery?
Dubbed Britain’s strangest ever haunting; it was a poltergeist case that spanned an incredible 12-year period. At its height it became a major national news story, with newspaper headlines about strange noises, flying objects, exorcisms and ghostly communication. An attempt was even made to contact the poltergeist on live prime-time TV on the BBC and it was discussed by the Home Secretary in the House of Commons.
There will also be a Q&A so you can put your questions about the case and the making of the series to Danny and his team of experts!
