Spooky Fun

Cressing Temple Barns

Back To Events skeleton and pumpkins

Halloween is nearly here and a ghostly crew is taking up residence at Cressing Temple for this year’s Spooky Fun throughout October half-term.

The event will run from Saturday 26th October to Saturday 2nd November, 11.00am-4.00pm each day.

Every day will be packed with fun activities, all in the beautiful setting of Cressing Temple.

At this year’s Spooky Fun your little monsters can:

• Pick and carve their own pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch
• Meet some slithery creatures at Snakes Alive
• Make some spooky slime to take home with them (bookable workshops for age 4 years and above)
• Transform into a terrifying creature with face paint (suitable for age 3 and above)
• Marvel at performances from a fire eater and stilt walkers
• Watch a magic show
• Make some creepy crafts
• See a danger show, including sword swallowing
• Play some traditional games with a Halloween twist
• And more!

Hot drinks and refreshments will be available on site as well as Tiptree Tearooms will be open. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own refreshments to enjoy.

Dress to impress in your best Halloween costumes and we'll see you there.
