Ghosts of Wales Live - A Halloween Special: A paranormal podcast party for Nos Calan Gaeaf

How are you celebrating Halloween this year?

Do you fancy some ghost hunting, but don't where to start? Or maybe you want to visit a haunted pub, but need some tips and advice? Or maybe you're just looking for a good spooky book to read?

Then this is the podcast for you!

On this extra-long Halloween edition, author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) will be talking about his new book Paranormal Wales, and some of his favourite "most haunted" Welsh places, with some very special guests.

What is "Ghosts of Wales - Live!"?

Every Halloween - or Nos Calan Gaeaf, as we say in Wales - Mark hosts a paranormal party at a different location called "Ghosts of Wales - Live!"

With a varied line-up of special guests, there are ghost stories, paranormal investigations, and plenty of spooky surprises along the way.

Sadly, hosting a live event in 2020 isn't really an option, so this year we're doing something even better - hosting a paranormal party on the Ghosts & Folklore of Wales podcast instead! 

That means, for the first time ever, everyone can join in and listen, wherever you are in the world. The events are usually sell-out affairs, but not on this scale - this is the first time it has truly gone global!

Special guests include storyteller Owen Staton and paranormal investigators Cymru Paranormal. Press play for more!

What is Nos Calan Gaeaf?

In Celtic times, each day began at sunset.

October 31 - Nos Calan Gaeaf in Welsh, the night before Calan Gaeaf - marked the beginning of winter, and while it was a time for celebration, it was also a time of great foreboding and apprehension.
