One of my books is called "Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation" and is all about the various ghosts I met when I took 2 vacations in England. Recently, Bristol Live in the UK ran a series about haunted places in Bristol, so on this blog, you'll read about 1 each week for the next several weeks! Meanwhile if you want to read about the ghosts I met (Queens, shop owners, members of the royal court, Tavern workers, Shakespeare's sister, and even a dog, check out my book on Amazon.com. Now, onto the hauntings in Bristol, England:
Theatrical ghosts of Bristol Old Vic
Bristol Old Vic, or The Theatre Royal as it was once known, is Britain's oldest working theatre.
The historic venue on King Street is well-known to ghost-hunters, and both staff and audience members have reported drops in temperature, the sensation of somebody brushing past them, and even a strange, sweet smell that comes and goes.
The theatre is said to be home to at least two ghosts.
The first is a lady dressed in black who is believed to be either famous actress Sarah Siddonss reliving her glory days or Sarah Macready, the widow of a theatre manager who cannot bear to leave the place she loved most in life.
The other ghost is that of a man killed in an accident at the theatre. Known as Richard, the ghost moves objects around backstage and turns lights on and off.
