Chichester Ghost Tour strides out in aid of Cancerwise

Latest press release made it into the local press: Links at the bottom to see how they can misspell your name! (LOL)  Here is what I actually sent them: 


Cancerwise and Chichester Ghost Tour

Thirty-one people had  a scary Halloween experience on Saturday evening, 27th October.  They attended  a ticketed one-off event to support Cancerwise.    “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 ghostly goings on still occurring in Prezzo’s and the ghosts  of “Reg” and “Mary” still active  in our high street shops.

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

Anyone who missed out on the walk can organise a private tour by contacting

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