HALLOWEEN WEEK 2021 23RD OCTOBER-31ST OCTOBER!

There will be oodles of fun and Halloween entertainment again this year to make this a “must do” time of year to visit Muncaster! Activities include the Scary Maze, fire juggling shows, alchemy workshops, kids crafts in the Ghostly Grotto and Axe Throwing (over 18’s only, weekends only).

New to the Festival this year is Rag Tag Arts who made the fabulous, enormous cardboard castle at Funcaster in the summer. Now they need your help to create a Day of The Dead masterpiece! Make your lantern in the Eco Barn* and join the evening parade through the gardens making its way to the "Magic Lantern" theatre in the woods. Have a go at our Spooktacular Shootout! Follow the trail and watch out for zombies and skeletons – water pistols supplied!*
