Almond Valley

Every day from 6th until 31st October (standard admission charges - no need to book)

The ancient stones of Livingston Mill have witnessed great happiness but also much tragedy, and during the season of Spooky Happenings, unquiet spirits that lurk there may become unsettled.

From the start of the October school holidays through to Halloween, the old mill and farm buildings will become home to all sorts of ghouls and ghosties, with scary surprises lurking around every corner. It is your job to solve the mysterious disappearance of paranormal investigator Dr Weebit Fiat, who was last seen entering the old mill at nightfall. Take your trail sheet, engage your powers of observation, and prepare yourself for some horrible sights. It's silly scary family fun, suitable for all ages.

In the museum there will be a programme of seasonal scary crafts and games, and lots of horrible things to eat in the tearoom

Friday 26th October from 18.00 to 21.00 (standard admission charges - no need to book)

For one fateful night only, Almond Valley opens its doors once night has fallen for an evening of dark surprises. Come dressed to kill and join the throng of monsters dancing and playing in the darkness. Travel on the ghost train to nowhere, or trundle on the tractor through the haunt of zombies. There's no need to book in advance, but please note that Almond Valley closes as usual at 5pm and does not reopen until 6pm

Saturday 27th October 10am to 5pm. (standard admission charges - no need to book)

On Spooky Saturday you'll be able to enjoy all the usual fun of Spooky Happenings, but there will be all sorts of additional join-in crafts and fun with a Halloween theme - including dooking for apples in a bathtub!. It's a gently scary occasion ideally suited for families with children aged under 10.
