The Battersea Poltergeist , the true story of Britain’s strangest ever house haunting, that became a worldwide podcast hit through an 8-part series on BBC Radio Four, is coming to theatres across the UK.
The Battersea Poltergeist was 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 at the hands of a poltergeist they nicknamed Donald.
Now at this exclusive live event, you will meet the show’s creator, writer and journalist Danny Robins – who is currently making his West End writing debut with ‘2:22: A Ghost Story’ at the Noel Coward Theatre, starring Lily Allen, Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood – and other guest experts from the podcast.
Together 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.
Dubbed Britain’s strangest ever haunting; it was a poltergeist case that spanned an incredible 12-year period. At its height, 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.
At The Battersea Poltergeist – Live there will 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!
The Battersea Poltergeist – Live is at Clapham Grand, on Halloween, October 31, 2021 at 7.30pm. Full tour details and ticket information can be found here.
