Halloween activity day

The museum is the place to be for a 'Spooktacular Family Explorers' family activity day on Tuesday 23 October 2018 from 10am to 2pm.

Come along for a fun filled Halloween experience. There will be plenty of spooky art and craft activities. Have a go at our ghostly trail or try out some gruesome grub.

Be enchanted by our spellbinding storytellers as they tell their spine-tingling tales.

There will be something for everyone with trails, quizzes, art and craft activities, and much, much more. Dress up in your best Halloween costume! The Garden Tea Room will be serving light savoury snacks, delicious cakes, warming winter soup and drinks.

Admission is £1.75 per person (annual ticket not valid), which includes entrance to the museum and garden. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
