Danny Robins to tour ‘The Battersea Poltergeist – Live’

Danny Robins’ hit podcast The Battersea Poltergeist will be presented live on tour this autumn.

Led by the BBC podcast’s creator, writer and journalist, the show will discuss what has been classed as “Britain’s strangest ever haunting”, and audiences will be able to discuss the supernatural event in a live Q&A with both Robins and his team of experts.

‘The Battersea Poltergeist’ was a multi-million download, genre-busting phenomenon, mixing documentary and drama to tell the incredible and terrifying true story of the 1956 haunting of the Hitchings family at the hands of a poltergeist they nicknamed Donald.

Dubbed Britain’s strangest ever haunting; it was a poltergeist case that spanned an incredible 12-year period. At its height, it became a major national news story, with newspaper headlines about strange noises, flying objects, exorcisms and ghostly communication. An attempt was even made to contact the poltergeist on live prime-time TV on the BBC and it was discussed by the Home Secretary in the House of Commons.

The evening will also see the production share exclusive footage from the case, as well as providing new evidence not mentioned in the original podcast.

The tour will open on 25 October in Salford, before visiting Guildford, Basingstoke, London, Ipswich, York, Poole, Cheltenham and Brighton.

Robins debut play 2:22 A Ghost Story is currently playing the Noel Coward Theatre. The paranormal thriller stars Lily Allen, Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood.
