The truly authentic Story of The Real Halloween from before plastic was even thought of. Told by candle-light as dusk falls and followed by the Parade of Animal Lanterns , our Story unveils the original Halloween when humans gave nature’s treats to the magical folk to stop bad tricks. No sugar involved. Bring your jam-jar lanterns but be sure to be as quiet as a mouse during the Story.
This story is not suitable for under 3s: please do not bring them
Please be ‘seated’ by 5.20 pm Saturday or 4.20pm Sunday for ‘calling in the owls’. Story starts at 5.30pm Saturday and 4.30pm Sunday.
Please – to avoid noise during the performance, do not bring babies, toddlers or adults who want to chat, as this means children cannot hear. Please turn off all mobile phones or use flight mode. Even ‘talking quietly at the back’ makes a lot of noise.
Thank you for your cooperation !
Anyone with buggies or under 3’s:
After the Story, the Parade will make its way through the woods, past the lake and back to the main Lawn. Please do not join the Parade with buggies or under 3’s. The route is highly unsuitable for any buggies, with mud and steep slopes. Please instead make use of the Good Elf Pub or the Crab Apple Cafe as a warmer place to shelter (both open to 6.30pm Saturday and 5.30pm Sunday). You can get the best vantage point to watch the Parade emerge from the woods, and get the best view of the fire show, if you go to the garden terrace at back of the House – just a minute’s walk from the Main Lawn.
Please stay off the slopes below the Terrace. Thank you !
