Spooky half term offerings at Stockeld

A spell has been cast for a hair-raising holiday of spooky fun at Stockeld Park this October half term with the return of the Hallowe’en Adventure.

The award-winning visitor attraction, at Spofforth, reopens daily with a packed special event programme for all the family until Monday October 31, 10.30am-8.30pm.  

To celebrate the Autumn festival the team at Stockeld Park have worked their magic to create a spell-binding week of ghoulish goings-on with the return of the real ice skating rink, the Nordic Ski Trail, the Giant Maze, the bewitching Enchanted Forest, face painting, the Hallowe’en Catwalk and Creepy Crafts in the Spooktacular arts and craft zone.

In addition to the adventure zones there are a host of special events to appeal to different age ranges:

From Monday 24 to Sunday 30 October, 10am–5pm, a host of Creepy Crawlie Creatures, including snakes and giant cockroach, are visiting.

Children can join magician Magic Mal, in the Wizard’s Den, from October 24 until October 30.

With shows throughout the day, little ones can learn new magic spells and have fun watching tricks. Each child also receives a Hallowe’en treat. Book early to avoid disappointment, the shows price is £6.

The wonderful Witches in the Forest returns on Monday 24 to Friday 28 October in the Enchanted Forest from 1-5pm. Visitors can take part in magical challenges.

And there’s chance to take home a pumpkin carving to be proud of.

The talented Christian Russell, a professional pumpkin carver from West Yorkshire, will be on site creating fantastical pumpkin designs from Tuesday 25 until 30 October, from 10am-5pm.
