Ghost Hunt Event Photo Old Beneficial School Ghost Hunt A fantastic opportunity has arisen to conduct paranormal investigations at “The Old Benny”, the affectionate name for the former “Old Beneficial School” in Portsea

This beautiful grade II listed building, dating back to the Georgian period, still retains many of its original features and is reputed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Portsmouth.

Built in 1784 as a school for poor children from the local area, funded by the Beneficial Society, the downstairs served as the classroom whilst the upstairs was used by the Society for meetings, concerts and theatre. Could it be that its conversion to the “Groundlings Theatre” last year has awakened the spirits’ desire to perform for visitors ?

It is thought that there are up to 9 active spirits – the ghost of “little George” on the staircase and Emily in the classroom. Laughing children have been heard upstairs, not to mention the cheeky poltergeist who has been known to play tricks by moving objects, including people !

What causes the strong smell of lavender in one of the rooms, the distinct cold spots on the site or the apparition of orbs?

Join us for what may prove to be one of the most exciting paranormal experiences as we seek to uncover the ghosts and friendly spirits who still frequent this site.
