Pumpkin Night is a big thing at the Bear, and well worth a visit. Not only is there a beer tent, a pig roast and a barbecue but many activities for all the family, including the election, and subsequent dunking (in the village pond) of the new Mayor.
Come along from 6pm to see a magician, the children’s fancy dress competition, a pumpkin competition, morris dancers, fireworks and an auction.
Nowhere else promises such a fantastic array of Halloween activities together with such great food!
Denman is running a very topical Halloween day school on 31st October – a crotchet class where you learn the basic broomstick stitch! You don’t need much experience other than an understanding of the basic stitches. Booking essential.
Come along, if you dare, to find out whether the County Hall in Abingdon is haunted. There will be live music from Oxford’s Spooky Horns, torch light tours of the galleries and the chance to make your own bat.
Make the most of the last opportunity of the year to experience the amazing views from the roof top. Who knows what you might see flying around in the dark on Halloween!
As always, Millets Farm’s October half term activities focus on pumpkins and Halloween. The Maize Maze becomes a spooky world of witchcraft and wizardry, with a host of activities inside and outside the maze, as well as pick your own pumpkin.
Throughout half term, Waterperry Gardens are running a seasonal trail, where children can come along and scour the ornamental gardens in search of 10 pumpkins. Turn up and have a go – and if you find them all you will win a special prize!
Just a bit further afield, Science Oxford Live will be in Didcot this Halloween giving an interactive family science show. Suitable for children aged 6 and over, this event offers amazing, eerie and spooky demonstrations to keep everyone on the edge of their seat. 31/10/2014 11:00
