Come along to Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury Castle during October half term for a very special Halloween themed week. 

From Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 October, the County Museum, will play host to a week of fun children’s craft activities with activities taking place every day between 10.30am and 4pm.

Children can join in Autumn themed craft activities including making autumn wreaths, brass rubbings and owl masks and Halloween themed activities such as creepy castle models, mummy code wheels and scary skeletons. Activities vary daily but three different ones will be available each day.

And throughout the week children can have fun carving their own Halloween pumpkin to take home, or following an explorer trail around the Museum to discover over 1,000 years of history.

Rachel Robinson, Museum Manager said: "Our half term craft activities are a great way to spend the holidays. There are fun and creative activities for all to enjoy covering the themes of Autumn and Halloween. This year will also see the return of our very popular pumpkin carving sessions."

Throughout the week the Castle Kitchen Café will be serving a range of tasty treats including some autumn specials and spooky cakes. After lunch children can let off steam in the nature reserve where the trees will be turning fantastic shades of red and gold.

And for early Christmas shoppers the gift shop is well stocked with a range of unique cards, gifts and contemporary crafts.

Admission charges apply each day (£5 adults, £2.50 children & concessions, £13 family ticket) plus £2 per child for a full day's activities and a small charge for pumpkin carving (varies according to the size chosen).

Visitors should call 01299 250416 or visit for the full programme of activities.
