History of Theatre Royal
The Theatre Royal, Margate, Kent is the oldest theatre in Kent and the second oldest theatre in England. The Theatre Royal was built in 1787, burned down in 1829 and was remodelled in 1879. The exterior is largely from the l9th century and has remained relatively untouched.
From 1885 to 1899 actor-manager Sarah Thorne ran a school for acting at the Theatre Royal which is widely regarded as Britain’s first formal drama school.
According to local reports, hauntings began in 1918 when the ghost of Sarah Thorne (an actress) was seen. Paranormal activity has been reported on the stage and backstage and it is known that one of the boxes is haunted as a man jumped from the box to his death during a performance.
Another ghost, that of an actor who committed suicide, is held responsible for creating strange lights that float around the stage area.
Ghost Hunting
We have been investigating #TheatreRoyal since 2013 and have witnessed; instrumental sounds, whispering, voices, coughs, chills, talking, footsteps, doors banging and names being called out! Plus we have had many an active séance session where people have been pushed, sometimes to the floor. Under the stage is generally a very active area, as is the stage.
Our favourite areas are; The top floor of the theatre as we often have some good tech sessions here, the stage as just about every activity we get good results here and below the stage is where we have had some great séance sessions as well as EVP’s and where guests have heard strange noises and musical sounds.
