Halloween at the Hall

Join us for an evening of spooky family fun exploring our haunted Hall by candlelight!

Beware of unearthly beings crossing your path as you wander through our candlelit old buildings and prepare to hear their stories from centuries gone by. Who will you encounter first? The Grey Lady? The Butler? The Housemaid? In the Great Hall, you can give audience to chilling performances and readings, where unnerving tales will come to life. Out on the West Lawn, you can enjoy a blood-curdling beverage in the company of spooky scarecrows and pumpkins in the candlelight. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to come dressed up in their spookiest outfits too!
