Join Simply Ghost Nights at St. Catherine's Hall in Doncaster for a ghost hunting event at this former Certified Institute for Mental Deficiencies, school, hospital wards for infectious diseases, psychiatric hospital, mental institution and prior to that it was a private residence to the Banks family. 
George Banks was a wealthy merchant from Leeds and former Mayor of Leeds too. George Banks had St. Catherine's Hall built in 1838 as a country retreat for himself, his sister Elizabeth and his only child Georgiana. 
George Banks stipulated that for Georgiana to avoid losing her inheritance any future husband would have to take the Banks name.
Georgiana married a Reverend who did indeed change his name to Reverend Banks. Unfortunately after 90 years of been owned by the Banks family in 1928 the house and all it's contents were auctioned and the house was bought by the Ministry of Health and after renovation work was opened in 1931 as The Doncaster Mental Deficiencies Hospital.
In 1933 it became a schoolhouse but for only a limited amount of time. The hospital also consisted of two children's wards, where infectious diseases were treated, a psychiatric unit, female chest unit and sanatorium, and male sanatorium, which was located slightly away from the other wards. The original kitchen is still in use, as is the nurses' building. In the earliest days as an isolation, or 'fever', hospital, the porters had to post a daily information bulletin on the perimeter fence to give details of patients' conditions and of any deaths.
With many recorded deaths, which former residents, workers and owners of the building will come forward to communicate with us on a ghost hunt at St. Catherine's in Doncaster.
On previous events guests have heard guttural noises likened to screaming, excellent table work and obscene language via the Franks box and much, much more paranormal activity.
