Halloween Happenings at the Haunted Hall

Lots of spooky fun for families at Kiplin Hall during this half-term, Sunday – Wednesday, 26 – 29 October.

 Take along a grown-up and join in the Halloween Horrors at the Haunted Hall. Dress as a spooky character, a witch, a ghost, a skeleton or something worse… and go along to the Hall to join in the Halloween fun. There are ‘nasty’ things to make and do in the Families’ Activity Room. Spooky Trails to follow in the gardens and Hall and the Play Ship, Bog Garden and woodland to play in – perhaps there’ll be something awful to find when you dip your net in the lily pond!

 The Gardens and Tea Room open at 10am and the Hall at 2pm, Sunday – Wednesday, 26 – 29 October. All close at 5pm as dusk approaches and darkness falls, when ghosts and ghouls and things that go bump in the night are abroad!

Torchlight Ghost Tours

Staff at Kiplin Hall, near Scorton, are offering to take the brave on ghostly tours of the 17th century house, which regularly features on Most Haunted.

Many tales are told of sounds, smells and sightings in and around the historic Hall: the echo of footsteps and sobbing in the ground floor Drawing Room; a woman in the long, narrow servants’ tunnel; a whiff of pipe smoke in the Second World War Kitchen; a hint of cologne detected in the Upper Drawing Room and many more unexplained tales that emanate from the past.

Kiplin Hall is steeped with the history of nearly four hundred years of life and death, and many spine-tingling accounts of eerie experiences have been recorded over the years.  Join the Curator, Dawn Webster, and volunteer, Mavis Palfreman, for a fascinating tour of Kiplin Hall and extraordinary tales of its ghostly inhabitants.

Booking is essential for the Torchlight Ghost Tours as places are limited to 25 per tour. Cost, including refreshments, is £10 for adults and £7 for children, who must be aged eight or over and not of a nervous disposition. Please bring torches.

Dates: Thursday 30 and Friday 31 October

Times:6pm and 8pm on both days
