A spirit medium who hit the headlines when he picked up a message from the other side that helped to put a serial sex criminal behind bars is coming to Boxmoor on Sunday.
Patrick Hutchinson works tirelessly night after night in pubs, hotels and clubs to show audiences up and down the country that the spirit world does exist all around us.
At one show he received a message from the grandmother of a woman who was in the audience. The grandmother confided that the girl had been abused a decade ago by a man who was still at large.
When the woman, then aged 20, heard the message she confided in a 19-year-old friend – who revealed that she too had been a victim of the same man when she was younger.
Both women went to the police, and then a third came forward.
After police mounted a full investigation the man – who already had a record for similar offences – was convicted of a string of indecent assaults and given a lengthy jail term.
He will also remain on the sex offenders register for life.
Patrick, who will be at the Steamcoach in St John’s Road, on Sunday night, is highly regarded in his field.
He was a successful businessmen and keen martial artist before he became aware of his gifts and eventually decided to dedicate himself to his calling.
He said: “I hesitated at first, doubting my abilities – but, through the constant support of family, friends and, most importantly of all, my spirit guides, I finally took that leap of faith and have never looked back.
“I have now found that fulfilment that I searched for.”
Tickets for Sunday’s session, which runs from 8pm to 10pm are £10 each and available on the door or on 0115 8410714.
