We have a perfectly petrifying Hallowe’en planned, so join us if you dare, as our Ghosts and Gourds Spooktacular takes place this weekend, 22 & 23 October from 11am to 5pm. As the garden takes on an eerie feel, take the terrifying ghost trail, say boo to the sinister characters from Premiere Circus and see your little monsters transformed with some fearsome, freaky face painting. Don’t escape without beheading and carving your very own pumpkin to take home and ward away the evil spirits.
It doesn’t stop there, get goosebumps following our Hallowe’en Ghost Trail on 22 to 25 October from 11am-5pm, as your imagination explores strange and spooky sight in the garden. Follow the pointers along the way, what’s that moving in the bushes and trees, a suspicious creature just past by your knees. Submit your clues and claim your treat. Additional cost for trail £1.50.
Keep your ‘little spooks’ entertained and pop into the café for terrifying family fun with Poison Chocolate Apple Dunking on24 to 31 October from 11am-3pm. Your little witch or wizard can dunk their apple into molten chocolate and take their treat home whilst you sit back and enjoy one of our bonfire lattes and ghoulish treat.
If Hallowe’en isn’t your thing, there is something for all the family this autumn from searching for fascinating fungi to discovering our spooky plants and soaking up the last shades of autumnal colour.
