A Little History: 1849 the railway arrived in Matlock bringing with it a new trade in Tourism. The Grand Pavilion was built 1910 on the site of the former stables and blacksmith yard next to the river Derwent. Its aim to host entertainment and events for the masses. Within a few years of opening First World War soldiers were billeted on site. Soldiers also spent time here recuperating from injuries. After the disruption of WWII the Grand Pavilion saw a variety of events and eventually became a nightclub and eventually closed.
Theatres are renowned for their hauntings. The Grand Pavilion is no exception, 2 workmen were thought to have been injured or killed during it's construction and are said to be the cause of the poltergeist activity near the Dome. Heavy breathing, footsteps, children giggling, a malevolent spirit and apparitions have also been reported throughout the venue
