Spending the night alone in this Grade II* listed former pub, Steve decided to host a mini DJ set, playing a selection of tracks in an attempt to engage with the spirits that are said to haunt the historic building and now you can listen to the set in full.

Steve’ decision to DJ for the spirits stemmed from a desire to create a unique and potentially engaging experience. He acknowledged that traditional ghost-hunting methods might not be the most inspiring for otherworldly beings and saw this experiment as an opportunity to bring a different energy into the ancient inn. Rather than seeking definitive proof of the paranormal, he aimed to have a personal encounter that could foster a deeper connection with the haunted location.
Before embarking on his spectral set, Steve consulted with fellow paranormal experts to gain insights into the potential impact of music on ghostly entities. Charlene Lowe Kemp from Paranormal Hauntings supported the idea, suggesting that the energy from the DJ equipment, music, and atmosphere could trigger activity. Barry Dodds from ‘The ParaPod’ also endorsed the concept, recommending uplifting house music to raise the energy.
During the set, Steve set up a small DJ deck on a large table adorned with a permanent Ouija board and added disco lights to the Beaufort Room. As he played the tracks, he called out encouraging messages to the spirits, inviting them to join in the impromptu party. He humorously welcomed both the living and the dead and playfully requested any music preferences from the other side.
