Ghost Hunting at the Former Leeds Union Workhouse at Thackray Museum of Medicine, Leeds 19 — 20 November 2022 Tickets from £40.00 — Book now

Visage Paranormal will be leading a spine chilling Ghost Hunting Event at the Former Leeds Union Workhouse, now the Thackray Medical Museum. The building is truly unique and contains centuries of history as well as countless souls who’ve still got otherworldly ties to the place.

You’ll conduct a vigil on the recreated victorian streets before learning how operations were performed and the gruesome tools used by doctors and surgeons when the building was a functioning hospital.

Be prepared to encounter the paranormal, be prepared to discover some fascinating history but mostly, be prepared to have some spine tingling thrills.
