October half term highlights

I love this time of year with all its Autumn magic and although halloween is a favourite of ours the tradition of picking pumpkins and then taking them home to carve and perhaps a few pipe cleaner spiders is about as far as we go, but with a new family Birthday at this time of year and the children getting a little older I think we will be celebrating even more from now on. There's so much going on so I thought I'd share my top 5 of things on our list.

1. HALLOWEDEN at The Eden Project: A spooktakucular special with themes from five of Roald Dahls favourite books! The ice skating rink is back and a Little Monsters ball disco is happening on the evening of 28th October. (free entry with a locals pass, if you don't have one yet then you can buy one from November)

2. Rogue Theatre Dead of The Night Dance at Tehidy Woods, North Cliffs: I am the biggest fan of Rogue Theatre productions, they are so magical and immersive and Tehidy woods is the perfect setting. All ages are welcome and there are shows on at 2pm, 5pm and 8pm most days. Book your tickets quickly before they all sell out!

3. Creepy Cornwall at The Maritime Museum, Falmouth: Lots of crafts, performances and activities going on at the museum over half term with highlights including the fabulous Squashbox Theatre on Tuesday 24th October and 'Thorsday' an interactive Viking peformance on Thursday 26th October.

4. Trevaskis Farm: Why not go along to Trevaskis to pick out your own pumpkin from the field. They have lots of animals to see and a lovely farm shop too.

5. National Trust Halloween Trail: All the National Trust gardens have spooky themed trails. Check out Lanhydrock, Trelissick or Glendurgan all perfect for an Autumn stomp.

Happy Halloween
