It’s Time for Halloween Family Fun

Oct 25 2018

Fairytale Farm near Chipping Norton is going to be a spooky place to visit this half term, with the ‘Fairytale Baddies and Spooks’ event, which runs right through the half term holiday from 20th to 28th October.

Owner Nick Laister explains that there are lots of free activities on offer: “We have a very family friendly, and fairytale-themed, Halloween event this year, with lots of free games and activities for younger children. Called ‘Fairytale Baddies and Spooks’, we have free pumpkin carving for every child, free spooky biscuit decorating and there is an opportunity for our visitors to get creative in our colouring corner and enter the on-site competition. Visitors can also look out for spooky fairytale characters. We also have face painting for a small extra charge.

The farm encourages its visitors to dress for the occasion. Nick adds: “If visitors come dressed up for Halloween they will receive a free treat, and if they post a picture of themselves on Facebook or Twitter, next to a well-known Fairytale Farm attraction – and share the post with Fairytale Farm – they will be entered into our prize draw to win a free family annual pass to the farm, valid for a whole year.”

Then on the evening of Saturday 27th October, Fairytale Farm will be holding a combined Halloween and Illuminations party, and everybody is invited. Nick says: “We really don’t want you to miss Fairytale Farm’s special late night Halloween event on Saturday 27th October, where for only the second time, we will be combining the excitement of our spectacular illuminations with Halloween activities to create a truly memorable evening out. Visitors arriving after 5pm can take advantage of our special ‘Illuminations and Supper’ all-in farm admission and food deal and will be able to join in with the extra Halloween activities, as well seeing the farm and having a stroll through the illuminated Enchanted Walk.

Special evening activities will include a workshop where children can make their own potions and spells ready to cast on All Hallows Eve, and a spooky story corner. (Note that those who have paid the full admission price earlier in the day can stay on and see the illuminations free of charge, and all the hot food can be purchased individually from our Beanstalk Cafe).
