THERE will be plenty of spooky goings on at Bromsgrove’s Avoncroft Museum over this half-term holiday.

Tomorrow (Saturday), Sunday (October 26) and next Friday (October 31), the scariest trick or treat in town will come to the venue.

Next Friday is fully-booked but there are still places available on the other two days.

Those who go along from 6.30pm will be able to walk around the museum’s darkened grounds in search of unimaginable terrors.

There will be scares and sweets aplenty and participants should take a torch and wear suitable clothing and footwear.

It is recommended for the over fives but parental discretion is advised for more nervous trick or treaters.

Tickets, which are £7 for children and adults and £5 for members, are available by calling 01527 831363.

Pre-booking is essential.

And from Tuesday to Thursday (October 28 to 30), Avoncroft will be holding spooky craft sessions and pumpkin carving workshops.

Expert carvers will be on hand to help with designs and there is also a gruesome Halloween quiz around the museum grounds with prizes for those who take part.

Normal admission charges apply and extra activity costs are £4 for pumpkin carving and crafts.

Pumpkin carving and Halloween crafts will be between 11am and 12.45pm and from 1.30pm to 3.15pm each day.

And spooky storytime will take place from 12.45pm to 1pm and between 3.15pm and 3.30pm.
