The “Most Haunted” Thwaites Empire

One of the UK’s leading Spirit Mediums is set to visit one of Blackburn’s most popular entertainment venues.

Spirit medium Derek Acorah, who rose to fame on Living TV’s ‘Most Haunted’, will be hosting his show at the Thwaites Empire Theatre on Friday, 4 September at 7.30pm.

Derek’s television career dates back over fifteen years when he became the first medium ever to demonstrate live on air and without the benefit of edit suites.

Michael Berry, Chairman at Thwaites Empire Theatre, said: “He is a big name to get the upcoming season at the theatre started. We are sure he will give a superb show of spiritualism and mediumship.”

Guests may also have a chance to meet Derek after the show.

Other upcoming performances at the Empire include an Elvis tribute with Paul Molloy, a family show featuring the voices of CBeebie’s Justin Fletcher and Nicole Davis and a show which combines two of the 70s most famous rock bands, Pink Floyd and Genesis.

Tickets to see Derek Acorah cost £17 and are available on the website at or from the box office 01254 685 500 Monday to Saturday 10am to 12:30pm.
