HANBURY Hall near Droitwich are planning an extra spooky Hallowe'en this year and have organised spooky storytellings, ghostly sightings across the estate and a family friendly trail around the gardens.
The fun is due to start on October 27 with ghost walks around the house, gardens and up to the candle lit Hanbury church, running at 5.30pm and 6.30pm and again at the same times on October 30 and 31.
There will also be walks at 4.30pm which are shorter and friendlier for smaller children.
During the day, on October 29, 30 and 31, children will have the chance to learn about skeletons, witches and bats while they race around the gardens searching for points on a Hallowe’en trail.
Little ones will have the opportunity to make cute Hallowe’en critters and become scary little beasts by having their face painted.
For more grown-up entertainment there will be Victorian and Edwardian ghost stories in the, low lit, Main Hall at 7pm on November 1.
Hot soup will also be offered in the intervals but guests are advised to wrap up warm for the chilling experience.
However, vistors are warned to take caution and keep their eyes and ears open for the shadows of Hanbury Hall’s past and the echoes of the Vernon family.
Adults tickets are £7 with an editional £3.50 for each child.
