A series of Halloween activities for families are planned at Woburn Abbey over half term.
From Saturday until November 3 November you can spend a day at the historic house and gardens with all of the extra children’s activities included in the regular admission price.
Visitors of all ages can take part in a Halloween treasure hunt when a series of cryptic clues will be hidden across three floors of the Abbey for them to find and decipher to solve a seasonal mystery.
The Russell Room in the South Court of Woburn Abbey will play host to some spooky storytelling suitable for children of all ages. Visitors can hear a storyteller recite a tale about ‘The Ghostly Goat of Woburn Abbey’ with performances taking place at noon and 2pm every day of the half term week.
A variety of craft activities with a Halloween theme will be available throughout the day. These include a chance for younger visitors to make their own witches hat and conjure some magical spells, as well as an opportunity to take part in The Big Draw – a national event to promote drawing that takes place throughout October.
The treasure hunt, storytelling, craft and drawing activities will take place every day of the half term week from Saturday.
Woburn Abbey Gardens and Deer Park is open from 10am to 5pm and the Abbey itself is open from 11am to 5pm each day.
