Half Term Halloween Entertainment

23rd - 31st October

Things that go bump in the night – and day – will create a spook-tacular half term experience for all the family. Our Halloween entertainment includes nerve-jangling activities, spine-chilling statues, scary stories, fiendishly fiery performers, pumpkin carving and ghostly train rides.

Hop on board the mini ghost train for a trip through the ‘Terrifying Tunnel’, come face to face with spooky statues in the Palace and see if you can spot the Beasts of Blenheim lurking amongst the paintings and artefacts. For younger visitors there’s also the chance to listen to a selection of scary stories.

There’s daily Frightful Fire performances in the Great Court on the afternoons of October 26th and 27th - and don’t miss the Bat Trail in the Walled Garden.
