Burton Constable 2021 Halloween 1

The historic gates of Burton Constable Hall & Grounds will be creaking wide open this October half-term, for a week of horrifying Halloween events and activities.

Explore the Gruesome Grounds and uncover petrifying pumpkin patches, creepy crafts and spooky story telling or access the Haunted Hall for ghost stories and a witches hat hunt!

Why not join in with the rest of the fun and choose a live pantomime that takes you on a journey down the yellow brick road to meet the Wizard of OZ? Perhaps you’d prefer to learn How to Draw Spooky Stuff with Calvin Innes or sharpen up your aim with have-a-go archery? Either way, there’s something for everyone this Halloween.

However, watch out for the resident Wicked Witch as she spooks her way around the site, selecting the most grotesquely dressed in the daily fancy dress competition! Don’t forget to feast on the frightful food and drinks concocted by Stables Kitchen, including their terrifying afternoon teas!

Situated on the outskirts of Hull, East Yorkshire, this historic hidden gem is the perfect place for friends and family to participate in a range of Halloween tricks and treats over the school holidays.
