Broomstick School this Halloween
Taking place on 30 and 31 October between 10am - 2.30pm, here you will choose a broomstick to weave and then decorate it with assistance from the willow weaving witches! This will take place within the marquees on the lawn. Outside, there will also be a pumpkin trail (£1 per child) to entertain the little ones. The giant room on the broom broomstick will feature again this year, an opportunity for you to snap some spooky pictures. Fancy dress is positively encouraged!
Prices are £7.50 per child and you will be required to pay on the day. Tearooms and outside chalet will be open serving hot dogs, light refreshments and luxury hot chocolates. Wood fired pizza will also be available.
