We are very fortunate in South Warwickshire to have so many great venues that organise special events for the Halloween period, for children, families and adults.
There are lots of opportunities for fun days out with the children in the half-term holidays leading up to Halloween on October 31st.
Here are a few that I’ve found and many of these are also highlighted in our Events listings:-
27th October - 4th November 2012
Looking for the fright of your life this Halloween? There is something for all thrill seekers and families when The Haunted Castle returns for its 5th year, where a week of ghoulish goings-on will be sure to chill you to the bone. For the first time ever, Warwick Castle will stay open until 9pm every night... but be warned to keep your wits about you as the ghosts become even more restless after dark!
