Ghost hunters Julia Macfarlane, Becky Brooke and Caroline Travis entertained them with light-hearted tales of ghosts and other spooky happenings connected to Chichester’s historic buildings.

New stories have been uncovered in 2018, amongst them the ghosts of “Reg” and “Mary” still active in city-centre shops.

Several of the attendees wore fancy dress to really get into the “spirit”.

Julia said: “I hope people enjoyed themselves. We are very proud of our city centre, its historic past and its resident ghosts!”

Emma Neno, who organised the event, said: “The event raised a fantastic £197.50 for CancerWise. We had a brilliant evening and loved all the ghostly stories! Our thanks go to everyone who came along and especially to Julia, Becky and Caroline for hosting the very successful evening. I had the idea after reading about the ghost tour during the Festival of Chichester and it proved so popular, we had to turn quite a few people away.”

Chichester Ghost Tour, the book, is available on Amazon and in Chichester book shops, as are Julia’s other short story collections.
