Public Events at the Pumphouse Theatre: Presentation Evening & all night Ghost Hunt Sleepover!

That’s right folks; we’re heading back to the one of our favourite haunts, to spend time talking about ghosts and the paranormal, as well as spending the early hours with the alleged ghostly residents of this stunning 112 year old building situated on the edge of the equally mysterious Lake Pupuke.



Note: This is an event of TWO parts.

You can choose to attend either, or both events.


7.30pm  Tickets for this are only $5!

The Haunted Auckland team will give four presentations of various paranormal topics.

Each talk is about 30 minutes.

Topics & Speakers
Sam Collier : Famous ghost photos explained.
Barbara Caisley: EVPs – Recording the deceased?
Kimberley Lendrum: Are Ouija Boards portals to Hell?
Mark Wallbank: Pareidolia – Seeing what the mind wants.

Plus a brief introduction and rundown on who we are and what we do.

Nearing the end, a presentation about the mysterious and eerie, (but beautiful) Lake Pupuke will also be given down by the water.



From 11pm onwards. (After the presentations)

Tickets for this are $99 and includes the Event One : Presentations evening from 7.30pm.
Hot & Cold drinks and supper included.

Paranormal Investigator and Founder of Haunted Auckland. I have been a mad researcher of everything Paranormal, Extraterrestrial and Crypto-zoological, since early childhood. When not creating electronic music, watching Horror movies and documentaries, archiving and documenting NZ’s diverse and eclectic music history, I have spent countless hours investigating and furthering my research out in the field, either as part of a group or solo, since the early 80′s. I’ve spent much time in opportunistic investigations whilst travelling around New Zealand and Internationally.
