The site is not let exclusively and you may have restricted access if other events are happening on the same evening. Please be aware that this is likely to be the case for every Saturday in the year. We will endeavour to keep you informed of the nature of the other event. If you are happy to share the site with another paranormal group please make us aware as this can help restrict bookings of a noisier nature.
