Beneath Kinda Kafe in Castle Meadow is Norwich's own Diagon Alley, with a hidden street which dates back to the 15th century and holds many of the secrets to the city's history.

On October 28, 29 and 31, Beyond the Shadows will be hosting a paranormal investigation in the eerie undercroft where they will attempt to summon spirits with groups of ten people.

The evening will run from 9.30pm to 1am and includes group vigils, table tipping, a spirit board, use of EMF meters, which measure radiation, and voice recorders.

Ghost hunters will be able to get a rare glimpse into the haunting space, which used to be at street level before the castle ditches were filled in to make Castle Meadow.

"They will use all the devices that they use on Most Haunted and have a preference for smaller groups as it is sensitive to what they are doing.
