Hello to Everybody

Following a hectic September when there were some radical changes made in my working life, we have now reached that time of the year when the veil between our world here and the world of spirit becomes ever thinner as we head towards the end of the month and Halloween or All Hallows’ Eve. This time of the year is one of my favourite times because, like no other time, you can feel the spirit world drawing closer. I love the Spanish tradition of spending the day prior to All Saints Day in the company of their lost loved ones. When I first had a home in rural Spain I was amazed at the number of people I saw heading towards the cemeteries on the 31st October loaded down with chairs and baskets of food. It was explained to me that this is their tradition…. they visit the memorials of their family members and spend social time there – eating, gossiping and remembering.

Halloween for me holds many wonderful childhood memories of ‘duck apple’ when a large bowl full of water would have apples floating which had to be grabbed using no hands, or the apple would be suspended on a piece of string and again, with no hands, you had to do your best to bite a large chunk out of it. I can’t say that I am quite so fond of the modern tradition of “trick or treat” but I suppose even I have to move with the times on that one.

I will be entering in to the Halloween Spirit on the 24th October when I visit Torre Abbey to join Richard Felix for a Psychic & Science Show. This event is a bit special because as well as the actual show itself which invites full audience participation with paranormal experiments, there will be the opportunity to purchase a VIP ticket which includes entry to a “meet and greet” with Richard and myself over a glass of bubbly and canapes, and then a ghost hunt. Who knows what will be discovered within the walls of the ancient abbey. If you would like to join Richard and myself then ticket information is available at

I had an exciting September following my exit from the Celebrity Big Brother House and I have been offered many opportunities to involve myself in various projects. I also commenced the autumn leg of my Whispers from Heaven Tour and have been fortunate to meet up with so many lovely people along the way. Visiting the theatres has given me the opportunity to thank some of the personally for the massive support you showed for me during my stay in “the House”.

On the 23rd September there was the hugely successful Derek Acorah Fan Club event held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Filton, Bristol, when the wonderful sum of £2,626.91 was raised in aid of Pathfinder Guide Dog Programme. If you would like to do your bit to donate towards Pathfinder Dogs then please go to their web site The Fan Club get together is always a huge hit with everybody and I think we all look forward to the get together when we can say Hello to some people who we may not have seen since the previous year. If you would like to join the Derek Acorah Official Fan Club then details can be found at

September also saw me eagerly welcoming back Mr. Brian Shaw of Brian Shaw Concerts as my sole representative and agent. If you have any enquiries regarding my availability then Brian is the person to contact on [email protected]

Best Wishes
