Taking place on select nights between 23 and 31 October (6pm to 10:30pm), The Castle After Dark guarantees haunting Halloween activities, frightfully good live entertainment, eerie new attractions and delectable local street food and drink for a fun-filled evening out.
Discover new scares for 2021 with the Massacre-ade Ball, an evening show so ghoulish that only the most fearless will be able to resist jumping out of their seats, and Hunted, an nerve-jangling scare maze full of ghoulish characters poised to shock and surprise even the bravest visitors.
Enjoy frightfully captivating evening entertainment and savour the spirit of Halloween as daring fire breathers, creepy roaming characters and live music all take centre stage, while eerie lights cast shadows and illuminate the Castle’s imposing walls, ramping up the ambiance of this unmissable Halloween celebration.
The bravest of souls can pit themselves against the Castle Dungeon*, working to escape the haunted underbelly of the Castle before it’s too late, or enter the Haunted H0llows to meet the devilish characters that reside there.
Of course, delicious food and drink is a key part of any celebration and with the very best of local street food available, The Castle After Dark has everything needed for a spectacularly spooky Halloween festival.
The Castle After Dark costs from £20 per person for evening entrance (6pm to 10.30pm) on 23, 24, 29, 30 and 31 October when booked online in advance.
Those looking to spend the ‘knight’ at the Castle can stay at the ‘Fright’s Village’ for a dreadfully good unique sleepover among whispering trees in the Castle grounds. Every stay includes two daytime entry tickets to the Castle (Castle After Dark not included), a hearty breakfast in the Knight’s Village Restaurant, free parking, and an exclusive spooktacular evening ghost story before cosying up safe and sound in medieval-themed lodges. Expect a visit from a witch or wizard at breakfast in the Knight’s Village the following morning.
