Haunted Halloween Fun, Wednesday 26th October to Friday 28th October

Wicked Walks: Children can follow the Holker guide on a ghostly Halloween walk. Go hunting for pumpkins through the Holker Park and Woodland and try to find the witches lair, but be careful if she is at home! Why not get into the spooky spirit and come in fancy dress. Guided walks take place daily at 10.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm and tickets are priced at £3.50 per child. One adult goes free per child and extra accompanying adults pay £3.50 per person. Places are limited so pre-booking is recommended.


Loathsome Lanterns: Bring along your own carved lantern, be it pumpkin, turnip, squash or marrow and take part in the pumpkin parade! The best ones will win a prize. Judging will take place at 11.45am and 2.45pm daily.


Creepy Crafts: Hands-on Halloween craft activities will take place each day in the education room. Drop-in sessions in both the morning and afternoon will run from 10.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm priced £3.50 per child.


Cauldron Café: The Holker Courtyard Café will also be serving delightfully disgusting food straight from the cafe cauldron.
