Haunted Happenings & Emmerdale
On 15th June 2013, the Haunted Happenings team and guests were joined by some famous faces from the popular ITV Soap Emmerdale to take part in an overnight charity ghost hunt at the very haunted Armley Mills in Leeds. This event was in support of local charity, Ruddi's Retreat, who provide holidays for those families with children affected by Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. The event was a huge success with cast members experiencing some truly terrifying moments. Together we are proud to announce that we raised over £4,000 for this amazing charity.
Cast members who joined the ghost hunt include Gaynor Faye, Kelli Hollis and Nicola Wheeler and our friends at Real Or Otherside captured all the action of the night on film. They also managed to film some amazing paranormal activity and raw interviews with the cast and guests. We have a small taster of this haunting footage here. We also have a limited number of copies of the full video available to purchase from The Paranormal Shop priced at £9.99 each. Profits from the sale of the DVD will go to Ruddi's Retreat and you can pre order your dvd here.

An amazing location. Arrived a sceptical believer, left a believing sceptic!! Loved it! Xx Sadie Ottewell-Howard - Ghost Hunt at the Damhouse Old Sanatorium
Awesome night. Got touched by unseen hands on my head, smelt burning oil in the base room and the ouija board was great, plus the door on the grandfather clock opening on request. Can't wait for the next one!!
Martyn is a father of two and lives in Nottingham. He is a co-founder of Haunted Happenings and built the very first website with Hazel Ford. So much has happened since that day in 2007 and from a little acorn grew a successful and thriving business which he is extremely proud of. Martyn has grown with the Company and is a major contributor to the managing of the events and selection of the team members. His forte lies with the website itself and due to his outstanding work this website is continuously being imitated by other companies. However, everything is bespoke and all done by Martyn’s own fair hand.
The continued success of Haunted Happenings lies with the dedication, commitment and desire for excellence and Martyn has certainly proved this with the work that he has done. He is a valued member of the Haunted Happenings Team in every way. His work is invaluable and it is fair to say that the business could not function without him.
Hazel is a Mother of 3 and lives in Nottingham. She is also the Founder of Haunted Happenings. The business idea came from a love of ghost hunting. She loved the experience so much that she couldn’t wait until she could attend another ghost hunt as a guest with other companies. It wasn’t long before she realised that she had the skills to build a Company who could be the leader in this field and has done this with bells on.
Hazel has always ensured that Haunted Happenings has ethical, honest and likeable people working on the ghost hunts themselves and is very, very proud of her team. Her love of ghost hunting and her continued success with Haunted Happenings has led to so many other opportunities which Hazel will always cherish. Working with the Hoff and other celebrities has lasting memories but nothing equates to watching and working with such a fabulous Company as Haunted Happenings is and consistently having amazing guests, team and locations to work with. Hazel knows that Haunted Happenings has not reached its pinnacle yet and will not settle until the business is working internationally as well as around the whole of the UK. Many, many personal sacrifices have been made over the years to ensure that the company has the ability to grow and succeed but she knows that she would do it all again tomorrow if that is what it takes.
Katrina is a Mother of 3 daughters and lives in Nottingham. She is a co-founder of Haunted Happenings and what started out as a part time job at the kitchen table with Hazel Ford, grew into an amazingly unique business. Katrina is not the best ghost hunter (she gets scared), but she is certainly brilliant at organisation, administration and talking to guests about this unique and terrifying experience. Katrina works tirelessly to make Haunted Happenings the best Company of this type and brings a high standard of ethics and quality to all that she does. Katrina is not as active with Haunted Happenings due to personal commitments but she knows her admin site inside out and backwards and can spot a potential problem a mile away.
Katrina is involved in the planning of events and knows instinctively what will make a successful ghost hunting experience for each customer that she talks to. She is an asset to this wonderful company and always will be.
Wayne’s ghost hunting journey began with Haunted Happenings in 2009, but he has been fascinated with all things paranormal since an experience at a very young age. With an open mind, a healthy scepticism and an appreciation for the many historic locations we get to explore, Wayne approaches every ghost hunt with enthusiasm and loves sharing these encounters with our ghost hunting guests. With more than 400 ghost hunts under his belt Wayne has had several experiences which have affirmed his personal belief in the Paranormal, but is always looking for more and will be found in the darkest, most frightening parts of any location asking “is there anybody there”?
Paul’s interest in the Paranormal began at a very young age, age 7 to be precise when he had two very strange occurrences around the passing of his Grand Father. From that point onwards his interest with the unexplained grew but it wasn’t until the early 1990’s when he got involved in his very first ghost hunt, from that night on his interest in the paranormal intensified finding himself in spooky places whenever the opportunities arose.
In 2010 Paul and a couple of friends attended an event with Haunted Happenings and what a fantastic experience, Paul says that they were given the freedom to carry out their own investigations as well as get involved with people with all different levels of ghost hunting experience and help them to experience the paranormal. A couple of months later he was invited along to a Haunted Happenings event as a helper and the rest is history. Paul says that he does sometimes think that he was in the wrong job as to be honest he has always had a fear of the dark. You will never find him wandering around Haunted Happenings locations alone!
Emma is an integral part of the Haunted Happenings office team and although she doesn’t get to as many ghost hunts as she would like due to the demands of motherhood, she loves discovering and researching new places for our ghost hunting guests to enjoy. With one or two personal experiences that couldn’t be explained, Emma believes there is definitely something out there, but is still waiting for that ‘ultimate proof’ and is looking forward to attending many more ghost hunts in the future. You will generally find Emma closest to the exit on a ghost hunt, with her finger hovering over the 'on' switch of her torch!
