Halloween Happenings at Ormesby Hall

Children at a Halloween event

Imaginations can run wild this October half term when the historic house and woodland come alive for Halloween.

Dates: Saturday 23 - Sunday 31 October, 10.30 - 3.30

 

Potions and poisons trail

Are you brave enough to follow the Halloween trail through the house? Grab your potion ingredients list before searching for the potion bottles to find out what is required to cast your spookiest spell. Keep alert for what you might find in the dark rooms filled with magic and mystery, then continue your spooky adventure outside to discover more about the darker side of nature on the poison garden trail.
