About your booking


If you have paid a deposit to reserve your spot then the balance of the ticket must be paid at the latest 1 calendar month before the event. You will receive an email from us confirming your reservation (please leave up to 48 hours for the email to arrive). 

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 which is 9pm

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. 

Usually about 11pm we take a break where we serve complimentary hot drinks and snacks to keep you all going, our break is usually only for 30 minutes and then we are back investigating.

About St Nicholas Priory


The Priory was originally a Benedictine Monastery. Founded in 1087 it provided hospitality to pilgrims rich and poor.

The monastery, Gifted lands and property in the 12th & 13th Century set about building monastic buildings, where they lived an important and lively life until 1536 when King Henry VIII began the Dissolution, when the majority of the buildings were torn down and left behind.

Somewhere between 1575 and 1602 the Priory began its life as an Elizabethan town house. Very much loved and lived in for at least a century before it became a mixture of houses and small businesses. This is how it remained until the Edwardian era, it was given a face lift and returned to five smart homes. Finally, in 1913 the Exeter Corporation saw the historical value of the building and decided to restore it to its original and beautiful monastic design.

Stuck, frozen in time St Nicholas priory can’t help but attract its former residents’ home. Dwelling among original artefacts, gazing up at vaulted ceilings it feels as if they are continuing on with their lives as if time had not touched them.

Join us as we explore St Nicholas. We tug at the threads of a time forgotten by the living. Here we hope to add to our portfolio of evidence of the paranormal.
