BRAND NEW AND EXCLUSIVE LOCATION FOR FRIGHT NIGHTS SURREY

EVENT LOCATION: Nonsuch Park, Ewell Road, Cheam. SM3 8AL.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MANSION:

Not to be confused with Nonsuch Palace (1538) which is the other
side of the park – Henry VIII built the palace to celebrate the
birth of his son – he wanted to build a palace where ‘non such’
other palace could compare, hence the name! The palace was destroyed
in the 18th century but you can still see the foundations to this day!

Nonsuch Mansion was built in 1802 by the Farmer family, designed by Jeffery Wyatt, the same person that designed the restorations at Windsor Castle!!

It’s thought that the cellars at the mansion are much older than
1802 and are likely to be the foundations of Henry VIII’s original
hunting lodge.

It was built to be a party house – the Farmer family wanted it to be
as open and as big as possible, due to them being new to the area and
wanting to make friends with the local gentry and build their own
reputation by holding great parties!

Farmer family lived in the mansion right up until 1937 when
they then passed it onto the local council who still run the park today.
It was listed as a Grade II property back in April 1954.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY WITNESSED:
Staff have seen a little boy running up the staircase only to disappear down a long corridor on the upper floor. Staff have also seen a woman in a red dress walking through a number of rooms and then to walk through a wall and vanish!
Down in the vast cellars, an oppressive atmosphere is felt and dark shadows have been seen as well as footsteps heard and doors closing.
Figures have been seen outside wandering the grounds at night only to vanish from sight.
Will we see the little boy or the woman in red? Will we meet any former owners of the mansion? Could it really be Henry VIII down in his wine cellars closing the doors trying to protect his dark secrets and possibly his wine bottles too?!
Join Fright Nights Surrey for this first ever paranormal investigation as we try to uncover the stories and secrets of this mysterious mansion’s history.
