Groundlings Theatre - Portsmouth

Saturday 28th September 2024.

Reported activity,

Poltergeist activity, knocks in response, interaction with children, especially a known boy and girl. We will leave it for you to find out their names! Laughter heard and shadows seen! On previous visits, a team member had a metal hat thrown at them, a shadow seen, amazing table tipping experiences, and a visit from the not so nice headmaster. Why not join us with reports of up to 10 spirits? No wonder this place is a certified paranormal location!!

Groundlings theatre formerly known as the Old benny a Grade II* listed building orginally built in 1784 was the home of the Portsea Beneficial Society and the Beneficial School, remaining as a place of education until 1962 it is recognised as one of the first purpose built free schools in the UK, orginally a boys school in 1837 it opened its doors to girls becoming one of the first co-educational schools in the country. Temporarily closed in 1939 due to the WW2. It was said a sympathizer used the roof top to indicate to enemies where the dockyard was located.

Notable people frequented the building, including Prince Albert, Lord Palmerston, Queen Victoria, and was almost the birth place of the famous Charles Dickens.

Left abandoned until 2010 when it was brought and restored to become the theatre we know today.
