Interested in history and the paranormal? Drawn to things other-worldly, mysterious, and well, weird?

This Halloween event was an instant sell-out so as requested we have added an extra date!
We are thrilled to invite registrations to the second of our Spooky Tours at Dempsey Hill, late evening 1st November. On this date the celebration of the dead traditionally takes a Mexican twist and many families around the world gather for feasting and acknowledgment of their ancestors. Much like the European festival of Samhain and the Chrisitian Triduum of All Saint’s eve, All Saints Day and All Souls Day, Dias De Muertos is a celebration of death as a natural part of the human cycle, the continuum of bloodlines, the strengths and characteristics that have been gifted to the living, from those who have passed on. And much like the European festivals the timing of this festival is significant as it is regarded as a time in the Earth’s cycle, when the ‘veil between the worlds’ is thin and the dead join the living in celebration.
This beautiful and intriguing area of Singapore, formerly a military barracks dating back to the 1860’s, is both rich in history and a known hot spot for paranormal activity. We will start with a walking tour to learn Dempsey Hill’s heritage, after which we will stop for a nourishing glass of wine or two along with cheese and snacks. Then, thusly fortified, we will gingerly but intentionally enter another world as we learn about, and participate in, the true story of Halloween, a culturally-rich celebration informed by ancient pagan rituals and later Christian theology.
The final part of our experience will be a connection with, and acknowledgment of, the dwellers beyond the veil. Guests will be guided to sense and communicate with the other “inhabitants” of the area, both through their intuitive senses and the use of traditional and modern mediumship tools including copper dowsing (or divining) rods, pendulums and an electromagnetic field (EMF) detector.
This event will happen come rain or shine, but if the weather is really against us, we will arrange a substitute date shortly afterward.
Please book early as with the current COVID-related restrictions, spaces are limited!
Includes a glass of wine, cheese & snacks

Great evening. Superbly organised and a unique event – only in Singapore can you watch Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ performed in the garden of a black and white house. Performance was fun, with performers involving the audience. And having a picnic on the lawn in a beautiful garden made for wonderful ambiance.
I have been on many of Jane’s SG Tours and Events and every one has provided not just show and tell, but real insights into the architecture, the culture and the people. I have lived in Singapore for over 20 years and am well read about its history, but still find Jane’s Tour Guides provide me with insights and information of which I wasn’t previously aware. The research that is behind many of the activities is clearly immense and I particularly love hearing stories about the people who lived in the places we are seeing.
The tour exceeded our already-high expectations. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and personable.
The experience gave us deeper knowledge and a much better appreciation of Singapore’s fascinating neighborhoods.
