Phenomena include the apparitions include a former actor, a male ice-skating, strange noises, disembodied footsteps, and light switches and objects interefered with.

 

Peter Underwood inestigated this property, and includes pictures in Haunted Farnham of light anomalies taken in the Theatre Foyer.
