Spellbinding Fun for Little Monsters at Castle Espie this Hallowe’en Half Term

Feeling brave? This Hallowe’en half term, visitors to Castle Espie Wetland Centre can enjoy a whole host of Hallowe’en activities for little monsters at the Spellbound Festival from Saturday 24th to Saturday 31st October.

For the seven days of the Spellbound Festival there’s the chance to get crafty making spooky spiders, have a go at the hilarious games such as lob the ghost, catch the witch or traditional apple games and concoct a witch’s potion on the Recipe for Disaster Trail around the reserve.

Extra spellbinding activities over the weekend of Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October include face painting to add the finishing touches to fancy dress costumes and spooky owls will be swooping in for Mantella Environmental’s Owl Display. On Sunday 25th, show off your monster moves at Jump Jiggle and Jive’s Hallowe’en Hooley, four fun-filled, interactive dance parties between 2pm and 4pm with plenty of Hallowe’en themed props for children and adults too.

The frighteningly good fun continues on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st October with Hallowe’en treats including face painting, giant creepy crawlies with Mantella Environmental and Monster Mash Discos packed with spooky hits and fireside storytelling in the roundhouse.

Throughout the Spellbound Festival week there’ll be spot prizes for the best dressed little monsters and visitors to Castle Espie can enter into a prize draw to win a family pass to meet the GIANT LEGO Brick Animals and LEGO Brick Workshop tickets in February and March 2016.
