The Highgate Vampire Symposium 2015 was a great success. A very intense, informative and important event meeting and working with some really inspiring and dedicated speakers and paranormal researchers. It was a pleasure to meet Gareth Davies, Fox the Rebel and Andy Mercer for the first time; Jon Kaneko-James delivered a great lecture; David Farrant was on good form as usual; I got to meet one of my paranormal research heroes, Charles Walker; great to meet up with John Fraser, Redmond McWilliams, Patsy Langley, Drew Hartley and ‘back to the fuschias’ David Milner. It was a delight also to share the platform with Carrie Kirkpatrick and Sam Perrin. Della Farrant deserves great recognition for devising and planning the event – Paul Adams


It was a fantastic day Paul, and well done to Della and her team and also the great speakers we had. Hope there’s another one! Thanks to all of those behind the scenes who made Sunday such a success. xxx, Della. You pulled it off, girl! – Patsy Langley

Hi Della, Hi David it was a great day I think someone has already used the word Ambitious.. having helped organise similar events, I have to say you really pulled it off..the right mix of speakers & compère etc I feel you have set a precedent for a future conference on the Highgate phenomena 😈.. Well done to you all!! – AS


What a tour de force and it was really interesting.  As usual, I experience these people as gentle and thoughtful – NA

You really did a fantastic job in organising this wonderful event Della. Well done! And what a wonderful venue to hold it in too! You have demonstrated quite vividly that a group of people with differing viewpoints can gather together to debate and discuss the paranormal in an adult and mutually respectful manner – Redmond McWilliams


You achieved your thoughts and made it happen…well done to Della and David Farrant for getting through the day and all the crew…we all went away with different views and was brought closer to what The Highgate Vampire Symposium was all about – Deborah

Glad you all had a great day – Susanne Taggart


It was a Hell of a day, wasn’t it? You guys should be proud. – Fox The Rebel
