Harrogate Theatre

"Alice", said to be a friendly ghost and "the victim of a terrible love affair" haunts the stalls here, where light effects, cold spots, the smell of peppermint, and a whitish-grey apparition have been reported. Cold spots have also been detected in the rooms here too. Although there is no record of Alice in the records, legend says that she was either an usher, or a cleaner or even an actress who was allocated smaller and smaller parts over the years.

Update 9/2/22: The Theatre responded to my facebook request for any recent phenomena: "It is in the Stalls that the most recent sightings of Alice our theatre ghost have been made. She was a young actress that was the victim of a terrible love affair. The love was unrequited, and with a broken heart she threw herself off the balcony in desperation." When I asked when the last sighting was and how often she has been seen, my correspondent replied that they didn't know.
