Description

A Halloween treat for all the family with broomstick flight training, magical potion making in the woodland and spooky storytelling!

Autumn is a season famous for its turning leaves, cooler temperatures, and darkening nights - and not forgetting Halloween!

As the seasons change, so too do the wild visitors at Castle Espie. Wrap up warm this autumn and spend some time in their extraordinary wetland getting close to a wide range of species, playing with the leaves under your feet or participating in some spooky fun.

Join Castle Espie this Halloween where they will have a host of ghoulish activities for all your little monsters at the Spellbound Festival from Tuesday 29 to Thursday 31 October.

Embrace their inner Harry Potter with a broomstick flight training class, make magical potions from ghastly ingredients in the woodland, enjoy some spooky storytelling sessions and finish it all off with a frightful face paint and Halloween wetland craft.

The frighteningly good fun doesn’t stop there with this year seeing the addition of our new Nauseating Nature Trail. Venture into the dark side of nature and see if you will be in for a trick or a treat as you wind your way through our mysterious wetlands.
