Have a horrifically good Halloween
Haunted by the prospect of having nothing for children to do during the half term holiday? Having nightmares about trying to keep the little ones occupied? Solihull Council has got a couple of tricks up its sleeve to turn an autumn break with the family from a horror show into a happy holiday!
Firstly, the Wicked Workshop and Terror Trail will be taking place in Elmdon Park on Wednesday 26 October, 11.00am – 1.00pm. Young visitors should wear their best Halloween costumes for a chance to win the fancy dress competition – there are petrifying prizes for the best-dressed boy and girl!
There will also be a spooky ‘terror trail’ around the park, followed by a creepy craft activity. The event costs £1 per child, payable on the day, and the meeting place is by the car park on Tanhouse Farm Road.
Then, on Saturday 29 October, the popular Haunting Halloween event returns to Brueton Park!
Again, there will be prizes available for the best Halloween themed fancy dress, and there’ll be a scary walk around the park to meet Smelly Nelly the witch, as well as spooky stories, magic and lots of other things that go bump in the night! The event will finish with a craft activity at the Parkridge Centre.
Walks take place at 5.30pm; 5.50pm; 6.10pm; 6.30pm and 6.50pm and cost £3 per adult and £2 per child. Places are limited so please contact 0121 704 8000 to reserve a place and make payment in advance.
A devilishly good time is guaranteed for all!
