Spooky Fun

Cressing Temple

Back To Events Three children in spooky fancy dress

Dig out your best spooky outfit for our fun filled Halloween event for all the family.

Join us for an activity packed day at the historic Cressing Temple Barns and enjoy our brand new interactive puppet shows, magical storytelling and complimentary creepy face painting. Plus explore the site on our three themed trails and find ghosts, pumpkins and witches  in order to win a special well done prize!

There will be the chance to meet a range of creepy critters, including snakes, lizards and big bugs. Also we invite you to explore our 'Horrid Histories' area where you can learn about grisly cures, nasty punishments and gross jobs from the past, plus see how people would have dressed and what they ate.

Throughout the day you will have the chance to make a selection of Halloween crafts, which you can decorate just how you like and take home to decorate your house. Once you've done this, you can have a go at racing your own broomstick or challenge your friends and family to any of our other themed outdoor games. Then don't forget that the Fancy Dress Competition is at 2pm.

You are welcome to bring along your own picnic to eat either in our covered barn areas or out on the many areas of lawn. Alternatively, we will have caterers onsite who will be selling tasty food to purchase throughout the day. The Tiptree Barns Tearoom will be open but there may be a wait for a table during busy times.

Parking is free onsite. Please leave your dog at home for this event.
