Halloween at Sacrewell

21 October @ 9:00 am - 29 October @ 4:30 pm

£2 – £18.95

Join us for our new interactive Halloween event at Sacrewell this October.

Experience Halloween like never before as you immerse yourself in our virtual reality headset experience. Enjoy a spooky sound and light show in an inflatable dome with 360-degree cinema. Spend the day exploring the ghastly ghost forest in the natural play area but beware of the gargoyles lurking in the darkness. They hold hidden letters to reveal a mystical word.

Join the storyteller in their rustic farmhouse for an engaging story telling experience. They will capture your imagination and take you on an eerie adventure.

Be sure to wear your Halloween costume to Sacrewell and enhance your look with fabulous face painting in our creepy courtyard. Get stuck into slime making and embrace your inner creativity with a spine-chilling spider craft.

We can’t wait to take you on a bewitching journey around Sacrewell with enchanting Halloween props and a not-to-be-missed photo booth. Savour the memory to last a lifetime…
