Following on from the success of last years Halloween Museum fundraiser, this spooktacular event will see the entire Beaney site transformed into a haunted house between 10am – 5pm on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th October.  Visitors can enjoy pumpkin carving, potion making, Halloween themed refreshments and explore our spooky exhibits. Fancy dress is encouraged with prizes for the spookiest outfits! 

Entry is free with additional payable activities available.

A £5 family Halloween trail will also be available, based around the ghost story of a Canterbury witch called Mother Crawe. Can you crack the answers and lift the curse on The Beaney that the crows of Mother Crawe created? Complete the trail successfully for your chance to win an Amazon Fire tablet!
