On the evening we will greet you at the front door of the venue, if possible try to arrive 15 or 20 minutes early, we can make sure you get a hot drink and an introduction. We try not to begin until all of our evenings team arrive as it can be disruptive, but we do start on time.

We like to begin our events with a grounding session, this lasts no more than a few minutes and gets every one in the right frame of mind to kick off the evening.

History of Margam Castle

Built on ancient land which has been sacred for a thousand years. Where ancient tribes buried their dead in the surrounding hills. Margam stands majestic and tall. The spectacular seat of the Talbot family.

The Curse

After the dissolution of the abbeys in the 16th century, the Mansel family purchased the land with the ruined abbey and monastery. The lead and stone for the castle was taken from the ruined abbey,

Local legend is that when Christopher Rise Mancel Talbot took the stone and lead from the abbey to build his castle, both he and the castle became cursed. Indeed, his family witnessed tragedy, his descendants were in the end ruined, the wealth squandered, and the Talbot line eventually died out. Eventually in 1941 the castle was put up for auction.

For hundreds of years there have been reports of ancient ghosts wandering the property, even before the castle was built. To this day people still see a tall shadowy figure high in the castle.

During WW2 the castle served as lodgings for Allied troops. Here too strange stories of Paranormal activity were again circulated.
