A frighteningly good time is promised at Bewdley Museum this Halloween as it presents a week of spooky activities and its Family Fright Night.

There will be plenty of spooky goings on at the museum on Saturday 28 October.  The fun starts at 5pm then at 5.30pm Funtime Theatre will be presenting ‘Snow White and the curse of Frankenstein.’

There will be a disco until 7.30pm and a fancy dress competition for children and adults.  You can take along your own carved pumpkin, but please use battery operated lights rather than naked flames.  Other activities include apple bobbing, scary skittles and a spooky trail around the museum. 

Councillor Juliet Smith, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Community Protection said:

“This is great way for all the family to enjoy Halloween in a safe environment.  We’re encouraging families to get dressed up and come along for a spooktacular time!”
