Investigation Log Savoy Theatre Monmouth .Saturday 13th August 2016

 

Investigation times:  10pm - 3am

Weather: dry and mild

 

Tonight we did a team investigation for a change which is nice.

Firstly we investigatedthe stage. Kev was picking up on a Leighton and Darran picked up Mr Smith. 2 ted was going up to Amber.

We could also hear noises and footsteps coming from the auditorium but we couldn't see where from due to the curtains being shut and screen down. There were a few knocks and taps and low whispers but not a great deal else

 

Dressing roomsthe knocking block went off twice for no reason. I therefore moved it to the stairs next to the green room. 

Kev picked up that someone was sitting in the middle row, the 4th seat along from the aisle (to the right of the stage as you are looking from the stage). We then heard a faint female voice outside the dressing room and a faint whistle was heard when Darran called out and asked for one. Lorraine was getting the name Elsa but Kev then got the name Elsie Seymour and that she was the lady sat in the chair in the auditorium. She's waiting for someone. Lorraine and Darran were seeing shadows going from one side of the room to the other behind olly.

We then moved to the other side of the green room sitting outside the upper dressing room near the stairs. There were noises of someone moving around in the toilets, a definite swishing of fabric clothing and knocking and tapping. The on/off torches then turned on and went off when I asked them to turn it off. There was a loud thud which seemed to come from above us in the attic space above the dressing room

 

Main auditorium.Coming out here, we all sat stage end. We then found out that the seat that kev had been picking up on, actually had the cctv cable resting on it that we had left there. K2 ted who we placed in this seat, shifted. The green torch then turned on and then off again when asked. Darran picked up a male on the top balcony who was watching us. He's either the manager or owner of the building. Me and Darran could smell stale beer but olly and Lorraine had a sweet smell over where they were sitting like coconut. Lorraine had someone touch the back of her neck.darran put on the spirit box and a male voice came through which sounded like "Mansfield "

Top balcony.We all came up here so that we could look down on the theatre and stage. The on off torches were going on and off as well as doing it dimly as though reacting to vibrations of someone dancing / stamping next to it to make it go off or someone messing with it turning it on and off in quick succession. Anne then asked for the other torch to come on instead of the red one and the green one came on. It then turned off again on her asking if it was a male spirit

Foyer. not a lot in here. The on/off turned on but apart from that nothing.

 

Darran and kev both picked up on a fire in the upper part of the auditorium

EVPs. - There's some strange noises in the auditorium. On both the one at the back and the one on the front of the stage noises were picked up. A couple of times, there were noises around the sound / light desk where the CCTV equipment was placed. You clearly hear the tape being ripped on two occasions which was holding the camera at the front of the box and there's also a loud noise of the door creaking open (possibly one of the ones at the back of the theatre) and footsteps. At this point, I know we were all down in the dressing rooms as around the same time; it was when the knocking block was going off so no one was in the auditorium. This was picked up by both recorders in the room but strangely seems clearer on the one near the stage.

Again, the top tier balcony recorder also picked up on the door however up here it was a lot louder and you could hear the door actually swinging back and fore. It could be that it was actually a top floor door opening and not downstairs. If this is the case, then we wont have it on the camera . not long before this though ( we were by the upper dressing room and toilets so nowhere near) theres the sound of a small child.

On the stage, it sounds like something being dropped onto the stage.

As for video footage

 

Camera 13 bottom right hand auditorium

All is fine all night until around 20 past two when its starts going on and off and we lose the picture and then it comes back as though someones messing about with the cabling. Goes on for a few minutes and then is fine again

Camera 8 main floor of the auditorium in front of the equipment desk

2306 camera falls quickly to point to the floor. Then it starts to turn itself around over the next few minutes going into different positions until 2312

2316 starts to move the other way but still pointing to the floor keeps turning until 2315

2329 quickly moves again so that it completely tilts 90 degrees and now faces the ceiling and the unit

2339 turns again to face against the unit more

2350 turns even more

2356 starts turning the other way to face the opposite direction

0000 really quickly again falls 90 degrees to face the floor again.

0007 starts wobbling

 

Camera 15 front foyer

2231 almost as soon as we start recording, it looks like something is coming down the stairs and then it goes to its left as an orb into the main auditorium

2238 bright light starts to come down the stairs. As it gets near the bottom, its joined briefly by another and then again goes to its left towards the auditorium. Its none of us we are all in the green room. Its not a torch as theres no beam of light just a round light

Just after this, the camera starts to tilt upwards to face the ceiling. It finally settles itself to face more of the ceiling than the stairs by 2247
