Brooke Vincent and Katie McGlynn get locked up for Halloween

Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) and Katie McGlynn (Sinead Tinker) will be part of a group of female ghosthunters to gather in the bowels of Manchester’s King Street this Halloween with a double job to do - exposing ghostly goings-on whilst raising cash for charity. 


Brooke and Katie will be joined by Melissa Travis of ITV2’s Girlfriends fame, DJ Hattie Pearson from XFM, Manchester blogger Charlie Hoosen Sykes, and representing the business world, Sam Booth from Pro Manchester.To complete this stunning ensemble will be this year’s Miss Manchester, Codie Hayward,

As Halloween descends, everybody will be leaving mobile phones and all technology ‘above ground’ before they are ceremoniously locked in the original underground vault of the old Lloyds Bank Building on Upper King Street. 

The only way of being released first is to get friends and family to raise as much cash for Forever Manchester before they enter the vault, but totals can change at any time and depending on how much money competitor’s Just Giving pages total throughout the evening – they will either be released and whisked off to Forever Manchester’s Halloween Ball to party the night away - or locked up for even longer, until the last woman standing is solo in the vault, on the eve of all hallows!

Behind the fun and fundraising though there is real purpose - to find out exactly what is going on in the underground location.

The team developing 53 King Street have been sharing stories of screams and bumps when they visit the subterranean space. After nerves got a little too shredded they called in psychic investigator, Stuart Marshall.
