Enjoy a wickedly good time at Downhill Demesne, Castlerock on Saturday 29 and at Hezlett House on Sunday 30 October.

Kids in fancy dress at Halloween


“Plenty of courage … a thirst to prove yourself. But where to put it?”

Join us for a magical Harry Potter themed day in the Walled Garden at Lion’s Gate from 1pm-4pm on Saturday 29. Come dressed as your favourite Harry Potter character and see who can catch the Golden snitch in a friendly game of quidditch with your family and friends. Take the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9 and ¾ before taking a pumpkin carving class in Herbology with Madame Professor Pomona Sprout. Choose your very own wand from Ollivanders and use it to cast spells and destroy the horcruxes on a hunt for the golden egg. Try your hand at archery with the Order of the Phoenix in the Room of Requirement and fly over to the Great Hall to create your own Honeyduke’s Frog Box and Sorting hat.

Enter into a fairytale world and join us at a cottage not too far away on Sunday 30 October from 1pm-4pm. Who’s the fairest of them all? Come in fancy dress and meet Snow White before visiting Kidz Farm and creating Halloween crafts. Embark on the Huntsman's Cottage Trail and help the huntsman stop the Evil queen by finding the dwarfs, collecting the poison apples and finding the fake heart.

“Lips red as blood, hair black as night, give me your heart, my dear, dear Snow White.”

All proceeds go towards caring for our places & spaces.
