This year explorers wandered from dusk into darkness and through the spooky spider tunnel to be surprised by fantastic fire performers - as they watched out for the faceless horseman emerging from the mist.
They discovered scary scarecrows, listened to the werewolves’ howl and dodged the grinning pumpkins as they approached the Vampires crypt... but little did they know what fanged monster lurked inside….
After all the spooky goings on, there was a variety of comforting food stalls and yummy treats on offer. Many adventurers enjoyed a fiendishly good *hot toddy or devilishly decadent *hot chocolate and toast a marshmallow or two. As well as this, little monsters enjoyed our fun fair both before and after the trail.
This season spooks enjoyed devilishly good chocolate and satisfied all appetites with something for little monsters and grown-up ghouls alike. Bursting with chilling chocolate characters, Hotel Chocolat provided treats which were frighteningly flavoursome!
