En­joy a ghostly walk through the woods or see the best pump­kin carv­ing bat­tle

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - HALLOWEEN SPECIAL -

PULLING NO PUNCHES: HIS­TORIC build­ings re­stored on the Chilterns coun­try­side will open up for trick and treat fun this Fri­day (to­mor­row).

Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum in Gore­lands Lane, Chal­font St Giles, will host its ‘Hal­loween Spec­tac­u­lar’ from 6pm un­til 9pm, with last ad­mis­sion at 7.30pm.

Vis­i­tors can go trick-or-treat­ing, visit an eerie witch’s cot­tage and go on a ghostly walk through the woods.

Vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence man­ager Siân Ham­mer­ton-Fraser said: “Hal­loween is our favourite event of the year, there is friendly com­pe­ti­tion be­tween our staff and vol­un­teers to cre­ate the spook­i­est ex­hibit and I won’t even talk about the best pump­kin carv­ing bat­tle.

“We love com­ing up with new monsters and witches to spook our guests and amaz­ing cre­ative ideas for fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties.

“The mu­seum re­ally comes alive in the twi­light, and it’s great for vis­i­tors to see our his­toric build­ings so at­mo­spher­i­cally lit up.”

Ac­tiv­i­ties and en­ter­tain­ment in­clude crafts, a labyrinth, a fire breather, face-paint­ing and sto­ry­telling.

Hot food and drinks will be avail­able and peo­ple are en­cour­aged to dress up for the event in Hal­loween cos­tumes with a prize for the best.
