Director - Events Manager

My name is Steve ‘Pudsey’ Mitten, I am 27++++ years old and I live in Southampton, Hampshire.

Having had many unexplainable experiences from a young age and then going on to work at a possible “haunted” hotel where plenty of things seemed to happen that I couldn’t explain, it was a very easy decision to say YES PLEASE, when a group of local paranormal enthusiasts called one day and asked if they could come and conduct a paranormal investigation. After this I was hooked!

After continuing to have many experiences that I just cannot explain, I have since become a firm believer that GHOSTS do exist,  although I also believe that no one will ever be able to prove this whilst they are still alive!

I continued for a short while as a member of a few other groups until I was very fortunate to become involved with a local fast growing organisation where I felt very comfortable for nearly 6 years. It was during this time that Steve Hunter and myself came up with the idea of Paranormal Adventures. PA was created one day whilst sat outside a Kebab shop eating the most amazing chicken doner kebab. We had this vision of creating a group where we could share our knowledge and experiences with others, whilst at the same time enjoying our hobby. We wanted to be different from other groups. We were not and are still not all about making money. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to investigate the paranormal with a group of trusted genuine ghost hunters.

My best experience to date has been at Buckingham House in Old Portsmouth, a séance that went horribly wrong and I ended up being badly hurt by a very angry spirit, (yes I do believe spirits can hurt you). I won’t tell you the whole story now but you are more than welcome to ask me on a ghost huntThe most haunted location for me is Wymering Manor. Too many strange things happened there that are totally unexplainable.

I look forward to meeting many more people, all looking for that ‘experience’ that could possibly convince them that there is something more to life than we first thought.

Hey I’m Dan,

I joined the team in 2017 and have a passion for all things paranormal. I love to use some of the coolest technical equipment in the search for paranormal activity. I joined the team as a sceptic who wanted to share my search and experiences with people just like me. I love to have a laugh and a good time to try and built the energy for the spirits to use. I look forward to meeting old and new guests and sharing this amazing hobby with you.

My favourite locations are HMP Shrewsbury and Wymering Manor. My favourite piece of equipment is the R.E.M. POD and SB7 Spirit Box.

One day I would like to investigate Haslam Military Hospital.

Maureen George

Lead Investigator

Hi I am Maureen but you can call me Mo…..and I am not cheap, or part of the 118 service……

 

I joined the Paranormal Adventures team in 2017, after being a guest on several of the events they held.  I love the ethos of PA, whereas we all agree there is “something” else out there, but we all have different beliefs & views of who, what, when and how.  I am a very logical thinker, therefore I like to debunk everything first, and if I cannot, then let the full on investigation start!

 

My belief in the Paranormal didn’t start with one specific event, I have always thought that there must be something more to us than just being created, living and then dying.  I mean, we all know how babies are made, but what makes us individuals with different beliefs, views, ways of thinking etc?  Something is causing us to be different, and that something is what I want to investigate further…..with your help.

 

One of my most favourite places to investigate has been Stansted House, probably because as soon as you walk in, you feel like you have been transported back 100 years, and really get a feeling for all the people who have walked there before you.  I also had an unexplainable episode there where rocks were thrown at us in the undercroft! However, the most haunted place I have been to is Wymering Manor in Portsmouth, where we have had intelligent communication via REM-PODS, light balls being moved on their own, and also knocking sounds…only last week we heard a disembodied voice call out “YES” when we asked if they were still in the room with us!!!

 

I am really looking forward to some amazing new locations over the next year, including Mary Kings Close in Edinburgh, Guildford College, Netley Hospital Chapel & Southampton’s Tudor House, and hope to see a lot of you there with us helping us investigate some of the UK’s most haunted locations.

Lauren Higgins

Paranormal Investigator

By day I work as a Pupil Support Assistant within a secondary school and I’m one of the schools designated first-aiders, I’m extremely passionate about helping to improve the education and lives of our younger generations and nothing is too much trouble.

I’m also a mum of two beautiful kids who I’m extremely proud of and are my world.

I have a couple of hobbies, one of which is cake baking and the other is investigating the paranormal to better understand what happens when we pass on.

I’ve been investigating with Paranormal Adventures since November 2017 and really enjoy it. I’ve been a believer of the existence of the paranormal for a year or so now. I started to become less sceptical once I experienced and witnessed what I think to be paranormal communication. I investigate with my partner Dan Winter who is a team leader and also passionate about the paranormal. We like to communicate with spirits using a variety of scientific equipment, my favourite piece of equipment is either the R.E.M Pod, SB7 spirit box or the night vision live CCTV Cameras

Company Director/Team Leader/Pudsey's "Boss"

Being married to Pudsey, I was always interested in hearing all the stories from his events but it took me 5 years to finally build up enough courage to get involved. The team made me feel so welcome and helped me get over my fears. I now run teams and am gaining experience quickly.

I look forward to meeting lots of people and having many more incredible Paranormal Encounters that I cant explain.

Paranormal Investigator

Hi I am Caitlin… you probably wont recognise me as each event I have a different hair colour… You’ll find me investgating with my “Sister” cough (Mum) Maureen!

My journey with the Paranormal Adventures team started in 2017, after attending many events as a guest.
PA is fantastic, we all agree there is “something” out there, but indivdually we all have different beliefs, views and styles of investigating.
– I am a very similar to my “Sister” in which I like to use scientific equipment and am a logical thinker, we work well together in a team helping guests investgate with Spirit Boxes, REM Pods, Cat Balls and many other gadgets.

My belief in the Paranormal grows more and more through events, although I have always believed that there must be “something” out there, I have always wanted the proof. With your help on events that proof/evidence just keeps building.

I couldnt tell you my favourite location, however one of the best and newest is Merley House, from hearing clear as day running footsteps from not just one but all three of the teams that evening, to a guests name “Philly – pa” being shouted on command through our spirit box (It was only after this that we found out her full name was Phillipa, not Philly as we had been calling her all evening).

I am very excited to investigate some amazing new locations over the next year, including Mary Kings Close in Edinburgh, Guildford College, Netley Hospital Chapel & Southampton’s Tudor House, and hope to see a lot of you there with us helping us investigate some of the UK’s most haunted locations.

I first experienced ghostly figures when I was a child, it interested me from then on. I ran a group way back when working at Manor Farm and experiencing lots of paranormal activity, I now look after all the groups that come in. I am now also part of the paranormal adventures team and get out when I can. My favourite place is Wymering Manor.

Chloe Mitten

Trainee Investigator

Hi Im Chloe and I am the Youngest of the team.

Growing up with my Dad (Steve Pudsey), I always had an interest in Paranormal Adventures. Dad made me realise that although some of his events are really scary and he goes to some really spooky locations, infact, looking for Paranormal activity is much more fun than I first thought. I had some ghostly encounters as a small child but as it was always an open subject in our house, I soon realised it was nothing to be afraid of.

I have been to many of PA’s popular locations already and can’t wait to visit many more. I have also met some amazing people along the way.

I look forward to meeting you all on an event soon
