There will also be delicious food from Café Cwtch and a licensed bar.

We get asked an awful lot what the recommended age is for attending our evening Halloween event. This is really difficult to answer as every child has their own scare level and we have to advise that it is at the discretion of the parents/carers because what is fun for one child could be terrifying for the next. As a guideline, parts are intended to be scary (after all it is Halloween)!  PLEASE BE AWARE there are some loud noises, strobe lights and gory scenes

Tickets can be purchased in advanced for £7 per person in advance up to 4pm on the 30th October, £8 per person on the 31st October Call to purchase on 01633 647662
