Halloween

Halloween

We are well known for our annual Halloween event and this year promises even more spooky fun across the October half term. The narrow gauge railway will be transformed into a ghost train. Visitors can enjoy a pumpkin and skeleton trail, make broomsticks, wands and bat boxes, and there will be special sessions of Meet the Creepy Crawlies. On Halloween itself, we will be offering Halloween face painting throughout the day. Some activities incur a small additional cost. One child in full fancy dress goes free with a paying adult – pre-booking recommended online.

The full timetable is:

  • Mon (25th), Tues and Wed, 10.30am-12.30pm: bat box building in the Beale Centre
  • Mon (25th), Tues and Wed, 1.30-2.30pm: Meet the Creepy Crawlies in the Education Centre
  • Thurs (28th), Fri, Sat and Sun, 10.30am-12.30pm and 1.30-3pm: broomstick and wand making in the Beale Centre
  • Sun 31st all day: Halloween face painting in the Beale Centre.
