SPOOK­TAC­U­LAR SUS­SEX

Chat It's Fate - - Chats it's fate | Haunted happenings -

Close to the site of the fa­mous Bat­tle of Hast­ings, dur­ing which poor old King Harold was bumped off by an ar­row through the eye, Bat­tle Abbey in East Sus­sex is no­to­ri­ously haunted, with rid­er­less horses leap­ing through walls and more ghostly fig­ures than you could shake a stick at! This year, from 20 to 28 Oc­to­ber, it’s hold­ing a Haunted Abbey event, with spooky tours around the abbey grounds, led by creepy char­ac­ters in cos­tume. Kids can en­joy craft ac­tiv­i­ties, make masks to take away, and en­ter the fancy dress com­pe­ti­tions - the best scary out­fit wins a prize.

Then, on 3 Novem­ber, there's a street pa­rade in Bat­tle High Street to cel­e­brate both Hal­lowe'en and Bon­fire Night. Dress like a ghoul and go along to en­joy the spec­ta­cle! You can book tick­ets at english-her­itage.org.uk – if you dare….
