The nights are starting to draw in and autumn is definitely here, but the colder weather doesn’t mean a stop to enjoying yourself with some fun events on the horizon.
Halloween is just around the corner and thebestof Watford has an events list packed with activities for kids of all ages.
The fun starts as early as the 14th October at the De Vere hotel with a Halloween Quiz Night in aid of the Peace Hospice. Teams of 10 are invited to take part for the Peace Hospice Trophy.
Then on the 15th, Watford Museum begins the first of its events in a Ghosts and Legends High Street Trail – a walking tour exploring some of Watford’s murky past.
Watford Museum is also opening its doors for a Haunted Museum night on Friday 28th October, in association with the ‘I Can’t Believe We’re not Better’ Theatre company, which is sure to be a night of fun and frights.
High Elms Manor is also getting in on the act with two nights of fun. Friday 28th October sees them hosting a Fright Night where children can enjoy Halloween crafts such as pumpkin carving and broomstick making before a twilight walk in the woods. And later, teenagers and adults can walk the haunted woods – but watch out for ghouls, ghosts and werewolves!
The following day, it’s another children’s activity as they can help the Manor’s resident witch find all of her magical tools that she has lost along the woodland trail on the Witch's Hunt. There will also be a craft market and husky rides plus much more!
And if you can keep your head while all around you are losing theirs, then you might want to enjoy the Watford Palace Theatre’s performance of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, where Ichabod Crane takes on the infamous Headless Horseman. Not suitable for anyone of a nervous disposition – you have been warned!
