Half-term week will see hair-raising family Halloween fun at Mapperton.
Perfect for toddlers and younger children, the three Half Term Halloween Fun Days, from Thursday 25 October to Saturday 27 October offer a family-friendly daytime alternative to scary evening events.
Spooky fun activities include gunge-packed game shows from Strawberry Jam’s Twitch the Witch and blood-tinged entertaining enactments from an olden days tormented Surgeon.
A garden map will hold the clues to a Halloween trick or treat trail and lead youngsters to the witch’s secret cottage. Who dares knock on her door?
Twitch the Witch will be putting on her show five times during each Fun Day, which is open from 11am to 4pm and fancy dress is positively encouraged. Entry includes free face painting.
The Halloween Fun Days are suitable for all ages and are an all-weather event with plenty of undercover space available. The Sawmill Cafe at Mapperton will be open serving light meals including children’s lunches, cakes, hot and cold drinks and ice-creams. Ghoulish hot chocolate and ghastly cakes will also be on sale!
