Imaginations can run wild this October half term when the historic house and woodland come alive for Halloween.

Potions and poisons trail

Are you brave enough to follow the Halloween trail through the house? Grab your potion ingredients list before searching for the potion bottles to find out what is required to cast your spookiest spell. Keep alert for what you might find in the dark rooms filled with magic and mystery, then continue your spooky adventure outside to discover more about the darker side of nature on the poison garden trail.

Witches Dance

Did you know each coven of witches have a special dance? Join the cackling friendly Ormesby witches each day to learn their unique dance moves before having a go yourself. The witches will be dancing away, 11-12 and 1-3.

Spooky storytelling

Settle down by the fire in the Victorian Kitchen each day to hear spooky stories and terrifying tales. Storytelling is on every day, from Saturday 23 – Sunday 31 October at 11.30, 1.30, 2.30, 3.30.

Creepy Crawlies

On Sunday 31 October, 10.30 – 4, Kirkleatham Owl Centre and an array of fun but frightful creatures and creepy crawlies will be at Ormesby Hall as we approach All Hallow’s Eve.

And more

And don’t forget everything else Ormesby Hall has to offer too. The natural play area, croquet, beautiful formal garden, model railway layouts, British wildlife photography exhibition and cafe.
