EventHalloween Nights

2931 October, 6pm-9pm
Cost £15 adults, £8 child, under 2s free
Suitability Age 4+

Halloween is drawing near, and it’s time put on your most blood-curdling costume for an unforgettable night at the Museum. Those familiar, friendly buildings will be showing their dark side as spirits are conjured up with bucketloads of SPOOK-tacular technical wizardry.  New for this year will be an extra-creepy SCARE ZONE for those who like their nightmares on the wild side (age 12+)

There’ll be spooky stories for little ones around the witch’s cauldron in Oakdale, and darker tales for the older and braver in Penrhiw Chapel. Wherever you go, you’re bound to bump into some of our extra ghostly guests. They’re straight out of the weirdest pages of Welsh folklore – and they’d just love to give you a fright or two!

Head over to our Creepy Craft workshops where you’ll be making things inspired by the terrible treasures that lurk in the darkest corners of our collections. Or make a magic wand in Kennixton Barn so you can cast your own special spells

There’ll be live music, and fiery jugglers to light up the night on Gwalia Green. Then as the evening draws to a close we’ll gather together to watch the Wicker Man burn. You can make a wish as the sparks fly high, then join the lantern parade to wind your way home.

Book your tickets now for a night of shadow and light and FRIGHT-fully good family fun!
