In which the Author talks poltergeists at the Ghost Club…


Poltergeist Over ScotlandThis weekend I’m honoured to be the repeat guest at the Scottish branch of the estimable Ghost Club, at The Tron Theatre, 63 Trongate, Glasgow G1 5HB. The event kicks off at 1pm on Saturday 16th.


Here’s the official invite:


On Saturday 16 February 2013, Ghost Club Member, Geoff Holder will be presenting his talk on “Poltergeist Over Scotland”.  The first ever history of Scottish poltergeist cases – an astonishing array from the 17th century to the modern day. 

Poltergeist activity, with its noises, flying objects, floods and fires, has baffled investigators for centuries. Geoff Holder’s new book Poltergeist over Scotland is the first ever history of Scottish poltergeists, with 134 cases covering almost 400 years of alleged supernatural events. Witches, demons, ghosts and hoaxers populate a canvas of commonsense-defying mysteries that stretches from the year 1635 to the present day. Geoff Holder is also the author of the recently-published What Is a Poltergeist? – Understanding Poltergeist Activity, in which he explores in detail the nine principal theories that have been advanced to explain poltergeists.


Geoff is the author of 25 books on the paranormal and peculiar. His talk ‘Sex, Lies and Poltergeists’ was a hit at The National Trust for Scotland’s ‘Unsolved’ Crime and Mystery Festival in 2012. Join Geoff for an energetic illustrated canter through a bevy of poltergeist cases from the Glasgow area and beyond. Expect scenes of destruction, chaos and pointless violence from the very beginning.


For this event we have to charge an entry price of £10.00, this includes a buffet provided by the Tron Theatre.

This talk is being presented for Ghost Club members and friends and if you would like to attend please email Derek Green, Investigations Officer at
The Tron Theatre bar will be open for this event so please come along to support Geoff and enjoy a drink in excellent company.

Please bring your friends along for an excellent afternoon.
