Help us discover more about the history and hauntings of this fantastic old school building together with Andrew Elson, our in-house clairvoyant medium. There will be workshops throughout the night where you will learn to use our investigative equipment, from dowsing rods and pendulums to emf and voice recorders, and even take part in spirit boards and human pendulums. We will split into small groups and head off to see what we can find in the various classrooms and offices, comparing findings as we go along… It will be a very spooky and interesting night!

This amazing school was proposed by Herbert Strutt in 1907 and was proceeded for the benefit of Belper Town. Designed by Hunter and Woodhouse the building was completed in the spring of 1909. Mr W.W. Tunnicliffe was the original headmaster who was there from 1909 until his retirement in 1936. The school became a primary school following a shake up in education in 1986 and it remained as a primary school until it’s closure in February 2007. It is now known as Strutts Business and Community Centre and is run by volunteers for the benefit of the community.
Poltergeist activity is often reported around the building including slamming doors which then refuse to open, the piano playing by itself, cold spots, shadowy figures and much more! After visiting the premises, Andrew Elson, Haunted Company’s clairvoyant medium said: ‘The building has this wonderful feeling of calm, but then as you walk around you soon discover that each of the classrooms has its own spiritual energy. Some have a peaceful energy and other rooms feel full of negative energy. There are also certain classrooms you would not Want to be left alone in! Wandering spirits roam the halls, and the Headmasters office is another story!’
