About Spooky Happenings

Daily from 6th to 31st October

As the nights get darker, mysterious creatures emerge from the dark corners of the old farm. Grab your trail sheet and look out for the clues on your spooky quest. Find your way through a world of magic and shadows with mysteries to solve, games to play, and some scary surprises around every corner. Get creative in the craft area where you can make spooky masks and manufacture monsters. All of this silly scary fun can be enjoyed any day from the 6th of October until Halloween during usual opening hours (10.00-17.00) with no need to book in advance.



While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Spooky Happenings are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
