Taking visitors on a “phantasm” – agorical journey into the spooky world of the Pumpkin Father the festival is an absolute must for those interested in ghosts, ghouls and everything that goes bump in the night!

Magic Alley will be packed with Halloween goodies and treats that you can’t get from anywhere else and the Golden Broomstick Café will be serving hot spiced pumpkin juice and pumpkin shaped cookies and treats.

The Enchanted Manor Museum will once again become the Haunted Manor as it plays home not just to the Tale of the Pumpkin Father but also becomes the temporary home of the Wicked Wizard of the West!

There will be spooky storytelling sessions for children of all ages as Dave Matthews, author of the Chronicles of Wizard’s Thatch, reveals secrets that don’t appear in the books and brings his tales to life as only he can!

And then after dark, join the sinister Professor for terrifying tales by candlelight as he brings the macabre tale of Alice’s House vividly to life in the Stratford Ripper Experience – this is strictly for adults only and definitely not for the faint hearted!
