Lots of scares at Cool­lat­tin House

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

THERE will be plenty of things going bump in the night – and day – as the his­toric Cool­lat­tin House throws open its door for some ter­ri­fy­ing tours this Hal­loween

South Wick­low Drama Festival has teamed up with Cool­lat­tin House to host the scary Hal­loween tours on Saturday, Oc­to­ber 28, and Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 29, as a fundraiser to help with the costs of host­ing the 2018 All Ire­land Drama Festival in Carnew next April.

Chil­dren’s tours will take place on Saturday and Sun­day from 3 p.m. un­til 6 p.m. Dorothy has been swooped up by a tor­nado and trans­ported to Cool­lat­tin House and the chil­dren must help to break the magic spell that will help her on her way. The tour will in­clude crafts, face-paint­ing and a Punch and Judy show. All chil­dren must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult and the ad­mis­sion fee is €10.

Adult tours will start at 7.30 p.m. un­til 10.30 p.m. on Saturday and Sun­day. The visitors will have an op­por­tu­nity to check out the nooks and cran­nies and ex­pe­ri­ence the hid­den se­crets of the house. Ad­mis­sion fee is €10.

Adults can also en­joy Drac­ula’s Ball fancy dress party from 10 p.m. on Sun­day night in Cool­lat­tin House. There will be mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment from Right as Rain and prizes will be given out for best dressed. Tick­ets are €10.
