Symposium Updates

Andy Mercer joins The Highgate Vampire Symposium

Goodbye Neil Arnold … Hello Andy Mercer!

Just one more change to the programme, dear attendees. Hopefully!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, as of today Neil Arnold is no longer able to attend the event. However one in, one out – fortunately author and paranormal / occult researcher Andy Mercer of the Keeping The Paranormal Friendly online community and talk show has agreed to join The Big Ghost Debate.

Actually, Andy jumped at the chance to not just report on the Symposium for KTPF, but to take part! Andy has been fascinated by the Highgate ‘vampire’ case for many years, and brings decades of experience in probing paranormal cases to the table.  With his background as a professional psychotherapist, Andy approaches the esoteric and supernatural primarily as a parapsychologist, concentrating on how the mind and human consciousness are affected by these experiences, rather than simply believing everything wholesale. That is not to say, however, that he does not remain openminded, having had several otherworldly experiences of his own.

Having founded The Institute of Paranormal Research, as well as attending many other investigations with groups around the country, Andy is a welcome addition to the team and we look forward to hearing his observations.

You can read an article I wrote about the Highgate ‘vampire’ case for the July edition of Keeping The Paranormal Friendly’s online magazine here.

And don’t forget, if you have not yet booked your ticket you can still do so online at or by calling the Box Office on 020 8340 3488.
