Halloween – Wednesday 31st October: Come and Scare yourselves

By popular demand, we are organising an evening in the woods from 8pm on Wednesday 31st October. Please bring along torches, your own ghostly stories & dress up for the occasion as you wish. This year it is largely down to you, so feel free to come along and improvise the night away!

Everyone is welcome but please note that it is really aimed at an adult audience and children might become a little bored.

MEET: By the entrance to Workhouse Woods above the actual woods on Winn’s Common. We shall leave shortly after 8pm and so latecomers will need to follow, unprotected from what the night will bring.
