THERE will be plenty of fun Halloween activities at Bromsgrove’s Avoncroft Museum over half-term.

Visitors heading there between Tuesday (October 27) and next Saturday (October 31) can carve a pumpkin with one of the venue’s expert pumpkin carvers, have a go at spooky crafts and listen to creepy tales from the crypt.

They can also have a crack at solving the terrifying museum trail.

Normal entrance prices apply, along with £4 for the pumpkin carving and craft workshop.

Then, towards the end of the week – from Thursday (October 29) to Saturday (October 31), there will also be the Halloween Trick or Treat Nights themed on Grimm Tales.

It is billed as the scariest trick or treat night in town and sees those who go along walk the museum’s grounds, encountering Grimm characters in the venue’s buildings for scares and sweets in equal measure.

Tickets are £7 per person (£5 Avoncroft Museum members).

To book tickets, call 01527 831363.

Gates creak open at 6.30pm with tours running every ten minutes. Pre-booking for those is essential as places are limited.

Suitable clothing and footwear should be worn and visitors should also be taken as the footpaths can be rough in places.

Parental discretion is advised for young or sensitive children.
