SPOOKY GOINGS ON AT CHILTERN OPEN AIR MUSEUM
MORE than 2,000 people celebrated Halloween at Chiltern Open Air Museum on Saturday.
There were special effects, a flaming fire breather and a mythical creature called a kelpie on horseback, which all provided a unique evening of entertainment.
Scary stories and spooky walks through the historic buildings kept everyone entertained to make the evening a success.
Children’s author Tatum Flynn was also there signing books, The D’Evil Diaries.
Sue Shave, museum director, said: “We have one of the most unique and spectacular Halloween events in the country but we couldn’t put on such a spectacle without the help of our dedicated volunteers, who have spent weeks preparing to make this event such a success.”
As the Museum is a charity, any proceeds from the evening will go towards the running costs of £1,000 per day, less than 50% of which are met by visitor admissions during the year.
The museum is closed to visitors now except for pre-booked schools, but musuem bosses are looking forward to welcoming visitors back on site for the Traditional Christmas Chilterns Event on December 5 and 6.
