Haunted happenings will be brought to life as Grantham's Wyndham Park hosts family fun for Halloween.

South Kesteven District Council is hosting Halloween in the Park from 1pm- 3.30pm on Sunday 27 October when performing arts students from Grantham College, under the direction of Matt Hewitt, will be casting a spell over their audience in The Legend of the Crystal Witch.

The interactive tale features a series of characters and challenges that need to be ticked off in return for a small sweetie reward, provided by Community Books.

Children's craft activities and trail games have also been developed for the day by students at Harlaxton Manor and there will be spooky music to set the scene. It costs £1.50 per child to take part and this includes the trail, craft activities and trail games

Visitors can dress up in their most ghoulish garments for the popular fancy dress competition. Best dressed child and best dressed family will win a pair of pantomime tickets for Cinderella at the Guildhall Arts Centre.

SKDC Cabinet member for Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Robert Reid, said: "Wyndham Park's Halloween event is great fun for all the family and hugely popular. There will be lots to do and a few frights - but nothing too scary."

Wyndham Park is always on the lookout for new recruits to join its army of volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering to continue to support events or the Visitor Centre should contact the Parks and Events Community Engagement Officer, Julie Ashworth, at j.ashworth@southkesteven.gov.uk
