The Old Nick Theatre creatively took its name because the building was originally the Gainsborough the Divisional Headquarters of the Lincolnshire Constabulary and Magistrates’ Court. It is a Grade II listed building built in 1859 and was used as a police station until 1972 and a magistrates’ court until 1978.
The buildings were bought in 1978 by Douglas Parkinson and the Magistrates’ Court on the first floor converted into a small theatre in 1979, then rented out and eventually given to the Gainsborough Theatre Company upon his death in 1992. The first floor of the building, which contains the police reception, watch room and cells, remains unchanged and in the same condition it was in when the police moved their headquarters.
With over 20 documented deaths it is no surprise there has been a lot of, sometimes terrifying, reports of paranormal occurrences from staff and visitors. Staff often feel uneasy, with a sinister presence in many areas of the building leaving a sick and unwell feeling. Temperature changes are a regular occurrence with disembodied voices and footsteps heard, door handles turn and objects disappear only to reappear in another room. Shadows are often seen moving around the building and exercise yard, people often report being touched and doors will slam and lock of their own accord.
