CHILTERN

Cos­tumed fam­i­lies came in droves and the event was a huge suc­cess as more than 2000 tick­ets were sold.

The mu­seum’s his­toric build­ing was decked out in hal­loween dec­o­ra­tions and filled with crafts, ac­tiv­i­ties and games. Events this year in­cluded fire breath­ing and spooky sto­ries. The event takes a team of over 90 peo­ple to run smoothly, ev­ery­one who works on the night does so as a vol­un­teer which cre­ates an amaz­ing feel­ing of com­radery and com­mu­nity – it’s hard work but great fun!” said He­len Light, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager at Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum.

The an­nual event is the mu­seum’s big­gest fundrais­ing event of the year rais­ing much needed funds which al­low the mu­seum to res­cue and re­con­struct threat­ened his­toric build­ings.

Cor­po­rate vol­un­teers from lo­cal com­pany Equinix do­nated props and helped carve over 50 pump­kins needed for the event.

Stu­dent vol­un­teers from Bucks New Univer­sity’s Bucks Blades donned cos­tumes and joined the Mu­seum’s spooky wood­land walk to in­ter­act and scare par­tic­i­pants.
