New City Spooks!

Posted on Thursday, October 30, 2014

Halloween is upon us and the new city is gearing for all sorts of creepy events this year. There is something for everyone across town, so make sure you get your teeth into them (literally!!).


The House Of Hocus Pocus takes place from Saturday October 25 to Friday October 31.

The garden centre has a wizard to guide you and your family through its fun Halloween experience. 

The centre says: "Our wizard will meet you at the start of the session, and guide you through the adventure. Enter our first room where all the children will get to dunk their very own apple in chocolate, and then cover it in yummy sprinkles! Next it’s into the pumpkin room where each child will get to carve their own pumpkin that they can take home with a battery tea light. Our wizard will then guide you through into our story room where he will read a fun tale whilst the children enjoy a sweet treat. This experience is suitable for all ages and lasts approximately 50 minutes. All children must be accompanied by an adult."


It costs £9.99 per child and £1.99 per adult. Between Saturday 25 and Friday 31, sessions will take place at 10.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm, or 4.30pm (there is also a 5.30pm session on Friday 31).
