Leading paranormal investigators Evelyn Hollow and Ciaran O’Keeffe, who were part of the crack team on the global hit podcast ‘The Battersea Poltergeist’, are now confirmed to join the live stage show, ‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live’.

Evelyn Hollow, a Scottish writer and paranormal psychologist who holds a Master of Research degree in Paranormal Psychology and Ciaran O’Keeffe, a psychology professor who has appeared on TV’s ‘Most Haunted’ and ‘Jane Goldman Investigates’, will join writer and journalist Danny Robins, creator of ‘The Battersea Poltergeist’ and writer of the smash-hit West End ‘2:22: A Ghost Story’ starring Lily Allen, at this exclusive live paranormal event of the year!


‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live’ will 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 stunning (and chilling) new evidence from brand new witnesses only just discovered and not featured in the podcast series. Could they hold the final clues to solving this supernatural mystery?”


‘The Battersea Poltergeist’ became a worldwide podcast hit through an eight-part series on BBC Radio Four, 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’.


Press are invited to review ‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live’ at Clapham Grand, on Halloween, Oct 31.


Clapham Grand was a dance hall venue attended by young Shirley Hitchings in the 1950s and is located just minutes from the site of the actual haunting at 63 Wycliffe Road.


Dubbed Britain’s strangest ever haunting; it was a poltergeist case that spanned an incredible 12-year period. At its height it 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.

‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live’ will include a Q&A so you can put your questions about the case and the making of the series to Danny and the team of experts!
