The courtroom in City Hall, in darkness, with a speaker lit by lamplight.

About

Take part in a spine-chilling exclusive evening tour of the Bradford Police Museum, through the Victorian Court and Cells.

Discover the fascinating secrets that lie within one of Bradford’s most haunted buildings. Experience a unique evening in Bradford’s Police Museum where you will gain a fascinating insight into the history of Victorian policing in the district, on the site of the original 19th century police station and court house which operated for a century in the heart of the city.

Are you prepared to join us in Bradford’s Victorian City Hall to hear more about the history of the legend and the sinister characters from Bradford’s past?

Hear about the paranormal events that have been experienced by guides, visitors, security and police officers over the years; cold spots, flying objects, computer malfunctions, equipment infestations, foul smells, orbs and phantom figures caught on camera or glimpsed on the edge of vision.

Hear author Les Vasey, local historian, a former senior police officer, and a member of the Society for Psychical Research tell the story of ‘Chains Charlie’ a former prisoner who was allegedly tortured in the cells and executed for murder in 1888, the same year that Jack the Ripper stalked the streets of London.

Will you take part in a spine chilling, lantern-lit lock in, with an exclusive evening tour of the museum, old courts and cells? Perhaps you’ll have a chance to meet ‘Chains Charlie’ for yourself; you never know when he’ll arrive!

Join us for this unforgettable, unique journey into the past and the paranormal.
