Halloween Events in South Wales.

Halloween Events in South Wales.

 

Sorry this is late
folks, but as they say, better late than never! I’ve put together a
list of Halloween events in South Wales, I’m sure there are more out
there, but these are the places we’d love to attend as a family or
just us grown-ups! There’s so much more out there these days to
celebrate Halloween, even we’re a bit overwhelmed with all the
choices, so hopefully this list will help you decide what suits your
style and your budget…

St Fagans National
Museum of History

On Sunday 29th
and Monday 30th October St Fagans opens its arms to
Halloween and all things spooky! There’s a special effects display
across the site, craft workshops, ghost stories for the old and the
young, pumpkin carving demonstrations, Halloween games, a lantern
parade and the burning of the Wicker Man! This looks absolutely
amazing, and I’m sure all who attend will have a hauntingly good
Halloween! (This event starts at 6pm ad tickets start from £8.)

Jolly Jesters
Playcentre

Jolly Jesters love
to get in the spirit (get it?!) when it comes to Halloween and this
year is no exception. On 31st October The Haunted Castle
will be taking over Jolly Jesters and for £6 per ticket (under 1’s
are free) you can enjoy their disco, take part in fancy dress and
games as well as lots of other ghoulish things! They’re also hosting a Baby & Toddler Halloween Party on 25th and 26th October from 10-1pm.

Cardiff Castle

This year you can
head to the glorious castle and enjoy a spot of Underground Cinema.
There are so many fab films on offer for you to choose from, such as
Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas and many more ghoulish
delights! Tickets start from £6 but watch out, they’re selling fast!

Llancaiach Fawr
Manor

This event sounds
really sweet and I’m actually sad I we can’t make it to this one.
There’s something for everyone here, from Ghost Tours and Witch
Trials for the grown-ups to crafts and discos for the kids, prices
start at £5 and it really does look too good to miss.

Ice Arena Wales

For the grown-ups
there’s a very special Foam Party at Ice Arena Wales, with optional
fancy dress and lots of prizes up for grabs! This fab party is on
27th October from 7.30-10.30pm and it’s £8 entry for the
whole night.

Cardiff Museum

I am really excited
about this event and no idea whether we will make it or not (I hope
we can!). The Museum is hosting a Natural Sciences Halloween Open Day
which sees lots of creepy things coming out of cupboards for us to
look at and discuss. There’s also a Halloween Quiz Trail which will
keep everyone entertained and prizes to be won. Catch this event on
31st October between 10-4pm.

Rhondda Heritage
Park

Probably one of my
favourite places to go, Rhondda Heritage Park have pulled out all the
stops woth their latest X-Scream event – check out my interview
with Warren here. They’re also hosting a child friendly event on Monday 30th
and Tuesday 31st October between 11-4.30pm; it will
include a pumpkin hunt, arts and crafts as well as pumpkin carving
and broomstick making. It looks fab!

Hendrewennol

As ever the gorgeous
fruit picking farm that is Hendrewennol have lots planned for
Halloween enthusiasts this year! From 26th October-1st
November you can enjoy pumpkin carving, broomstick making, web making
as well as a Spooky Village and Terror Trail. There’s also lots of
hot and cold food on offer too! Prices start from £2.50 for a
grounds pass.

Techniquest

 

I absolutely love Techniquest and this year they’re hosting a special After Hours: Halloween. From 6.30-10pm you can challenge yourself with their fab exhibits, solve crimes by following the clues, try out a virtual reality experience and more! Tickets start from £8.
Also, there’s also the option of hosting a party or heading to the pub, both of which might be a bit more expensive than some of these fab events!
Happy Halloween!
