Halloween Spooktacular.
25th October until 31st October - Whitehouse Farm Centre, North Whitehouse Farm, NE61 6AW

Are you brave enough to visit Whitehouse Farm Centre during their hair raising Halloween Spooktacular Event? Every day in the Grim Grotto budding witches and wizards can cast a spell at Magic Merlin’s School and join in the Halloween themed games with prizes to be won. Pumpkins can be bought and made into lanterns with the help of Penny Pumpkin.

Then if you dare, creep through the Walkway of Terror! Weave your way around the Spider’s Lair, Catacombs, Bat Chamber and Chop Shop but don’t disturb the ghostly spirits in the spooky sitting room and grave yard. See if you can find some of the witches from Flying School as they have lost their way around the farm, plus you may bump into some odd characters as the staff get dressed up too. Come in Fancy Dress and take part in the Daily Monster Parade and you could win a gift voucher for best costume. Have a hoot with the Owls and get close to some beasties in the Creepy Critter Shows.
