Board Spectrum of Exhibitors

This event is a dedicated Mind, Body and Spirit genre focused on all aspects of spirituality. The Pure Spirit Event is all about the traditional elements of this much-loved genre. Visitors will meet and talk with mediums and psychics and enjoy aspects of spiritual healing. The community Members’ line-up is the best and well known in the MBS arena. The Pure Spirit Event will bring magical moments and spiritual ideas. It will become a calendar date for all mind, body and spirit fans.

Alternative and Spiritual Healing

More people are investigating the aspects of holistic healing than ever before! While traditional allopathic medicine is curing millions of people daily, many love to complement their treatments with spiritual healing and complementary methods. During your visit to The Pure Spirit MBS Show, talk with a healer and experience a taster or complete treatment. You will defiantly feel better after a massage or healing meditation.

Music and Meditations

Visitors will enjoy outdoor meditations and Iza Moon and Claudine West music performances. Presentations focussed on everything esoteric. For example, you will enjoy mediumistic demonstrations: Reiki shares and spiritual healing sessions. We will also enjoy rituals presented by Alan Wood of Native American Smudging Rituals.

Derek Acorah Award Demonstrations

No other Mind Body Spirit Show offers such an extensive schedule of Mediumistic Demonstrations. And the demonstrations at this event are being assessed for Derek Acorah Award. With one room dedicated to demonstrations and spiritual presentations, the event will surely gain a following with those who love this aspect of the spiritual quest. And while writing about mediums and psychics, the show has many traditional readers who can offer superb consultations. What not have a reading? You may discover how exciting and accurate a consultation can be!

Talks Schedule

The Pure Spirit MBS Show cannot be without an extensive talk schedule. The subjects covered are varied and exciting. How do crystals work? Is there an afterlife? What is colour healing? Animal communication, Group smudging ceremonies are only part of the talks scheduled. Many Visitors come to the show with the presentations foremost in their minds. Is there any need to wonder why? The amount of spiritual knowledge, wisdom and understanding is second to none. Visitors will leave the event with much to think about. The spiritual journey is profound and enlightening. And all talks and demonstrations are free!


No Mind Body Spirit Show could be without a vast array of retail outlets. Retail exhibitors carry a vast range of stock. For example, everything from ethically sourced gifts, incense, fragrance oils, essential oils, cosmetics and clothing to crystals and silver jewellery is available. All are reasonably priced and of high quality.

Your Host

One of our best-loved Mediums: Mr Barrie John, is your host for the weekend. You will find him approachable and interactive with Visitors and The Community of Exhibitors. Barrie is so enthusiastic about this event. He has worked at many events countrywide together, and we have produced an event with significant changes to the format. Everyone will work together to make the best of these exceptional times. Never has there been a greater need to revisit or reconnect to our spiritual values.

Not only do we have the superb Derek Acorah Memorial Award presentation this weekend there is also an extensive talk schedule. The show is focused on the Spiritual aspects of our life. And the exhibitors provide an incredible array of stalls, but we also have stage presentations and talks to suit every interest.

Of particular note is Philip Underwood’s two-hour workshop focused on connection to the spiritual being, finding oneself and navigating life’s journey. Philips workshops have an immense following and are truly life-changing. The feedback from the FREE seminars at Well Being events has been brilliant. Do not miss this opportunity to work with a spiritual master with decades of experience. This is a real gift of an opportunity. Details of the seminar at Philip’s Anatha Centre stand.

‘Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award’

There was unprecedented interest – in last year’s Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award. We are inundated with questions about how the 2022 award will work. This article should clarify the situation. Barrie John and Gwen Acorah feel the award should be for the benefit for up and coming mediums. Nationally recognised mediums or those who already benefit from large stage audiences are not the focus of attention.

The award is, without a doubt, prestigious. After all, Derek was an internationally recognised medium. Therefore, whoever wins the prize must attain a very high standard. Anyone who takes part will have to evidence their ability. In the initial introduction, send in information about how long you/they have worked as a medium, where and with who are essential criteria for selection for the event.

For this year, not only can Visitors nominate mediums, but people can also put themselves forward. As mentioned, nominations must include a synopsis of your work and previous experience. Providing this information is essential, as the information will be used to select the 10 people who will go forward to the live assessments during The November Pure Spirit Show.

So, applications for this year’s show are simple and straightforward. Use the contact form at the bottom of the page and send in the application or nomination. Those who are accepted will be expected to attend one of the days of November’s Pure Spirit Show (we will send out the allocated time and day one month before the show). Many gifted people can take part in this event and maybe become a star in the making. The demonstrations are held at the:

Pure Spirit Mind Body Spirit Show
19 + 20 November
Lady Eastwood Centre
Newark Show Ground

The award will allow the winner to prove they have attained the highest mediumistic standard and benefit for many years after being awarded the accolade. There is no doubting the award will become a yardstick of attainment.

Another aspect of the award is finalists will have their place on the Pure Spirit Events page. This means visitors to the site can contact them for the following year and have priority places if they wish to stand at any Pure Spirit Show. The winner has secured reader places on all Wellbeing and MBS shows organised by LizianEvents Ltd. They will also stand without charge at Pure Spirit Shows. Plus, they receive an outstanding trophy.

2021 Winner Sarah May and Barry John

This Year’s Nominees:

After a very long and challenging two weeks, we finally chose the eight finalists for the Derek Acorah Memorial Award for 2022.

We received fifty-one nominations, which is why the selection process has been more involved than last year. The selections were made from the number of individual nominations for each person and the testimonials provided. As you can imagine, the selection process involved more than one could imagine.

The final eight nominees can be sure they have an excellent and dedicated following of loyal supporters. As already stated, we choose not to publish the names of the people who offered the names and provided testimonials. And we are pleased we made this choice, as the numbers involved would mean the task would take up literally days of work. And there is no time available!

Barrie, Liz and I wonder how far this award will go. If the take-up for the nominations grows in the same way for 2023, we will have to organise a show where more people become involved. The future looks promising as the award is only in its second year.

So to the eight mediums who will take part in this year’s award:

There is no order to the selection!

Rick Paul - LizianEvents Ltd

Rick Paul

Like many people involved in the spiritual world, my journey began with the feeling that intuitive feelings were more than imagination. As some of you will know, I had an essential experience as a patient in a hospital. And the experience of talking to a fellow patient one minute and seeing him pass moments later was a real moment of trust. Indeed, I realised later that this was a test and a real opening to my spiritual future.

I have worked tirelessly over the last six years to provide the most authentic expression of the gift of mediumship. And working countrywide has helped me gain the trust of hundreds of clients. I see my mediumistic work as both messenger and healer. And I look forward to the time with my audience in November. Rick

Rachael Farrow

I work for the Ambulance service full-time. Still, I love to engage with Spirit as much as possible when I’m not at work. I have an outstanding development group I meet with most weeks. I have formed a partnership from that and created spiritual connections.

I also work on psychic table nights, passing beautiful Spirit messages and attending regular sessions at my local spiritualist church.

I recently became a Paranormal investigator and found another way to connect to the spirit world. Still, I wouldn’t have done any of these things without the love and support of my mentors and the wonderful people I’ve met on my journey. I thank you all x

Dionne Linnell

Hi, I’m Dionne Linnell, a Psychic Medium, Reiki Master and Crystal Healer. I run my business, Crystal Clear Healing, full-time from my crystal shop in North Hykeham, Lincoln. 

Working for Spirit, no two days are the same! I provide:

  • 1-2-1 readings (Mediumship & Angel cards).
  • Reiki & crystal healing.
  • Psychic development training.
  • Running spiritual retreats.

I feel so blessed to be able to work for Spirit, and it is a role I take very seriously. It is an absolute privilege and joy to pass on messages from your loved ones in Spirit.

I am honoured to be part of this award…

Laurie Wilton

My journey began when I was seven and heard someone say my name. Unfortunately, I do not have a family who understands or support this belief, so over time. After many years of despair and challenging experiences, I met Stephen. The first person who ever “got me” we were married within two years and had our first child. Which made me see things entirely differently, but something was missing, so I continued visiting spiritual churches and watching mediums.

I visited a local event, a psychic evening, held by the Haunted Heritage group. And here, I met people who offered me the chance to learn about mediumship. And at 43, with lots to learn, my life feels like it’s where it should be – wholly fulfilled. Simply listening to the universe and the whispers from the unseeable have changed my life for the better!

Yvonne Fielding

I am a natural psychic spiritual medium based in Nottinghamshire. From an early age, I have seen and heard Spirits. I would see people in Spirit and have a conversation with them. Some would call them “invisible” friends. Spirit has always been a big part of my life. Giving support and guidance from the world of Spirit, helping people to enable them to understand and help with their life decisions and helping people with closures where necessary. Spiritual experiences and talents.
I love lifting the veil that separates us to draw the two worlds together. Proving to people that we only step through another door when we pass over.
Every Spirit has a story, whether from a reading, house clearance or ghost walk/hunt. I am happy to help lift the veil and draw the two worlds together. I look forward to connecting with my audience at The Pure Spirit Show.

Carol Wallace

I have always had the “gift, ” even as a child. My first experience was while putting the money in a meter. When the electricity went out, you were in the dark with a candle or a torch. Going into the back room where the electric meter was, I bumped into “a young lady” in a 1920’s servant’s uniform.

For many years I performed platform demonstrations at small spiritual churches. Eventually, working at larger venues, such as old Trafford, with a 280 audience! I worked at Hyde church with the amazing Gordon Higginson. And with friends such as John Harrop for charity events. I met Derek on the Northern Circuit

Although I don’t do readings at shows, I sometimes give my customers a quick advice/support message, or a recently passed loved one asks me to give a message.
