No one’s expecting dinosaurs, but the Becontree Estate is set to host its very own “night at the museum”.
If you’re brave enough (and you have £30), you could be part of the team that finally lays to rest – or vindicates – the legend of paranormal activity that has haunted the 600-year-old building for, well, 600 years.
That’s right – the Becontree Avenue museum is opening its doors for the night on Saturday.
Cllr Darren Rodwell, leader of the council and cabinet member for heritage services, called it a “unique event”.
“I hope that all those who take part enjoy the experience,” he said.
“As to whether Valence House is haunted or not, I guess we’ll have to wait and see.”
For the night you’ll become part of an investigation team using both scientific and spiritual methods to track down any poltergeists.

Those attending will be broken up into three teams including a medium, a camera operator and an experienced investigator who will brief you on how to get the best experience on your evening.
Each group will get full access around the house, meaning there are four potentially spooky floors to investigate.
Tickets are £30, including refreshments. Advanced booking and pre-payment are essential and you must be over 18 to attend.
The event runs from 8pm to 3am.
