Dust off your broomsticks and capes, freaky faces and witches hats and get ready to visit The Argory this Hallowe’en for a spooktakular weekend of frighteningly good fun!
See the courtyard come alive with story-telling, games and crafts accompanied by some strange characters from Hallowe’en past. Enter the Spook Shed for some ghoulish tales and follow a some peculiar characters along the Hallowe’en Trail – Goldie the Goblin and the Hallowe’en Troll are hiding around the estate – follow the clues that will take you to the Witches House, find all the ingredients and make some witches brew.
Carve out a pumpkin to take home, make some creepy crafts and visit the 1820’s house to discover the children’s ghost trail. Prizes will be given for the most spooktakular fancy dress. Judging will take place in the courtyard at 3pm.
The fun doesn’t end there as The Argory will be open from Monday 27 October until Sunday 2 November for Hallowe’en half term. Outdoor explorers can enjoy our recently extended play park – swing on a rope, balance on logs and whizz down the zip wire! See how many of our ‘50 Things to Do before you’re 11 ¾’ you can tick off before going back to school. See what goodies you can pick up in the Gift Shop and finish off with a yummy hot chocolate and marshmallows in the Coffee Shop.
