Halloween events

September 29, 2020

Whilst the current guidance and restrictions surrounding COVID have certainly put normal plans on hold, there are still some great local Halloween events and ideas you can join in with…

Milestones Museum in Basingstoke has re-opened with safety measures in place, including a useful counter on its website which tells you how many people are currently visiting, helping you to stay safe this Halloween. During half term week, dress to distress in your scariest costume on the streets of Milestones Museum and claim a sweet treat!* Activities include a “Trick or treat” trail, Halloween craft, and game ideas. You should book online in advance, visit the Milestones website for further details.

Basing House has a great activity for teenagers and adults, not suitable for young children. With such a rich history, this unique attraction is hosting a series of Ghost Walks.

Enjoy hot chocolate and tempting treats in the Tudor Great Barn before you go hunting for ghosts in the grounds with our expert guide in all things supernatural!

Boasting a rich history, from a Saxon warlord, to the infamous Tudors to the Victorian canal diggers and not forgetting the brutal fighting during the English Civil War you are bound to discover more than a ghost or two. With so many dark histories to discover will you be brave enough to dare the dark tunnel at the end?

These haunting walks will run from Wednesday 28 October to Sunday 1 November at 5pm, 6.30pm and 8pm. Booking is essential as places are strictly limited to six people a walk as part of COVID-19 precautions. Tickets cost £13 per person.

At Wellesley Woodlands in Aldershot, search for spooky clues during a mini treasure hunt, learn the crafts of knot tying, and reward your efforts with some pumpkin-themed games! This is a family activity, ideal for children aged 6-11 years of age, accompanied by an adult. Come dressed for the weather, wear sturdy footwear and waterproofs as required. Find out more, here.

At West Green House, Hartley Wintney, you can search for owls, win prizes, and take in the glorious gardens. Find out more, here.

However you plan on spending your half term, of course, stay safe, and please do share any other great covid-friendly events with us. We’d be very happy to help spread the word!
