They dared visit museum after dark
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.
