Paranormal Conference announcement and Networking Opportunity


We are delighted to say that we will be holding our next conference to discuss this very project on the 30th of November at Shepton Mallet Prison between 10 and 1:00 pm that day, where we will be introduced to and start the work to develop this incredible project. We will be opening booking for the conference now.
