Halloween Horrors at Attingham Park

Performing Arts and Media students from Shrewsbury College have joined forces and are preparing to scare visitors to Attingham Park this Halloween half term. Fearless visitors are invited to bring a torch, pick up a map and go on a self-guided walk through the grounds after dark before discovering what horrors lurk inside the basement of the mansion. Spooky Walks will be running from Monday 27 - Wednesday 29 October, from 6 – 8 pm.

Families are invited to dig out their scariest costumes on the evening of Halloween itself and meet the mysterious gatekeeper in the Attingham grounds before venturing into the party in the mansion.  Little monsters will be able to have a go at some creepy crafts, explore the gruesome kitchen, find their fortunes, and hear some terrible tales. Timed tickets are now available and are priced at £6.50 per child, which includes one accompanying adult to share in the scares. Additional adults can join their ghoulish groups for £1.

Darkness isn’t the only time for fiendish fun at Attingham this Half Term. Small spooks can pick up a Halloween trail during Half Term for £2.50 to explore the grounds in search for the creepy creatures or to discover who has cast a sinister spell on the park. Halloween traditions are also on offer, with a chance for little ones to carve a pumpkin on Tuesday 28 October to take home in time for Halloween. Tickets are £4.50 per child and can be picked up on the day.

There is plenty of old fashioned family fun to be had with Attingham Games in the play field on Wednesday 29 October from 11am – 3pm. Families will be able to drop in and challenge each other to some traditional games, or go up against the clock with sack races, beanbag challenges, egg and spoon races and more.

Joanne Marlor, Events and Marketing Assistant said, “With so much for all the family, Half Term is a great time to visit Attingham and find fun and frights for everyone. Families can pick up an adventures planner from Visitor Reception to stick to their fridge so they don’t miss a thing.”
