Hello to everybody, I hope that you all had a wonderful Halloween and Guy Fawkes night. I celebrated Halloween early on the 27th October when I travelled up to Dalkeith to join Jimmy Devlin, Jackie Drummond and Jan Murphy for our Halloween ghost investigation at the National Mining Museum of Scotland. What a night it was and hugely successful. Everybody enjoyed themselves enormously, so much so that our Easter event in Scotland sold out within six hours of it being advertised! We are all looking forward to our next investigation which will be at St. George’s Hall in Liverpool on the 8th December. There are only very few tickets remaining for this night so don’t delay in booking your ticket now if you would like to join us. You will have to be very quick if you don’t want to miss out. You can book on line by visiting my web site and clicking on the Ghost Hunt tab. St. George’s Hall is a spectacular building and we are all looking forward very much to the investigation there and wondering what may unfold as we delve in to the history of this iconic location. I have very few dates left in my diary for 2018 – they are as follows: 22 Nov Princess Royal, Port Talbot Box Office 01639 763214, 23 Nov Century Theatre, Coalville Box Office 01530 278444, 27 Nov Capitol Theatre, Horsham Box Office 01403 750220 and 29 Nov Viva Theatre, Blackpool Box Office 01253 297297.The beginning of December sees the launch of the pantomime Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs in which I am appearing at The Epstein Theatre in Liverpool. I’ve done my filming and am looking forward to seeing the results of my part as the Magic Mirror who features opposite “Kimbelina” the Wicket Witch played by Kim Woodburn. I do hope that some of you go along to see the show. All dates for my forthcoming Eternal Light Tour for 2019 can be seen on the Dates page of my web site We’re heading rapidly towards Christmas of course and at this time of the year people are looking for something to buy as gifts so could I make a suggestion that you may like to think about. As you may know I am Patron of the Pathfinder Guide Dog Programme which is a charity set up to provide seeing dogs for blind people. This charity does sterling work purely on donations only. They are responsible for the wellbeing of the dog “from cradle to grave”. It takes an enormous amount of money to prepare these marvellous animals for their working life so of course every penny goes towards helping them to achieve their goal. Making a donation to the charity in a friend’s name as a Christmas gift would be a wonderful thing to do – just a pound or two would be more than welcome – and would go far in helping to keeping this wonderful charity going. If you would like to read more and keep up with what Pathfinder Guide Dog Programme are doing then please visit their web site Keep your eyes open over the next few weeks as I’ll be popping up on television programmes here and there as a guest. I’ve enjoyed having a bit of fun and joining in the lighter side of life for a change. As ever, if you would like to contact me then please do so through the contacts page on my web site or you can enquire as to my availability through Gareth Boycott of Brian Shaw Concerts – or Brian himself – telephone 01794 340915. I can also be contacted through the messaging function of my Facebook page which is simply headed “Derek Acorah” and is verified with the Facebook blue tick. I can be found on Twitter @derek_acorah and also on Instagram where again the page is simply “derekacorah”. I would like to finish by sending huge congratulations from Gwen and myself to Mart and Kim on the birth of their son Eli on 4th November. I believe he just missed being a 5th November baby but will no doubt turn out to be an absolute cracker anyway. So all best wishes to you both and to all Eli’s sisters and brothers. Have a wonderful November! DEREK ACORAH
