Hallowe'en fun day at Leith Hill Place

On Tuesday 24 October the National Trust and ‘Into the Wild’ are hosting a Hallowe’en themed day, packed full of spooky books, craft and storytelling. Come and see Leith Hill Place as you’ve never seen it before, transformed into a spooky mansion.

Morning session 

10am-12.30pm for ages 4-6 (ages are guidelines only)

Join fantastic children’s author Alex Milway, creator of Walker Books’ ‘Pigsticks and Harold’ series, make your own mini monsters and enjoy spooky storytelling around the house.

Afternoon session 

1:45.-4.30pm for ages 7-10 (ages are guidelines only)

Meet Claire Barker, author of the popular ‘Knitbone Pepper Ghost Dog’ series, recently shortlisted for The Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Award. Enjoy pumpkin carving in the woods with a camp fire organised by the National Trust rangers as well as spooky storytelling in the secret cellars.

Come dressed in a spooky outfit, with prizes for the scariest.

Tickets cost £12.50 per child for the morning session and £15 per child for the afternoon session, and must be pre-booked on 0344 249 1895 or online. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Adult tickets are free, with a maximum of one adult per child, due to space restrictions. 

Parking for the event will be at the Rhododendron Wood car park on Tanhurst Lane, so please come prepared to walk across the field to the house (approx. 10 minutes). Ticket price includes all materials plus a drink and biscuit, for the child and accompanying adult.

There will also be books on sale during the day.

‘Into the Wild’ is a not-for-profit community based organisation which seeks to foster a love of books, storytelling and nature in children.
