About The Real Halloween


The Real Halloween will return to Holt Hall on 29 and 30 October – be sure to make a date in your diary for this very different Halloween event.   Full details will be announced later but the Real Halloween brings you a bumper collection of ways for children to connect with nature in the Autumn.  Here are a few images from previous events.  See more under PHOTOS.
