Win a family ticket to The Witching Hour at Mother Shipton’s this October half-term

Mother Shiptons Halloween

It’s the Witching Hour at Mother Shipton’s this October half term, and deep in the spooky forest where a world-famous Prophetess was said to have been born during a terrifying thunderstorm, the spirits are flying high. You may hear the cackle of old souls wandering the ancient woodland or feel a shiver down your spine as you step into the Haunted Halloween Village. Suitable for all ages, watch out for witches, ghosts, and creepy skeletons around every corner! There’s frightful fun to be had with photo opportunities and fancy dress competitions.

See the incredible Petrifying Well as it turns items to stone as if by magic! Be spellbound as you make a wish in the Wicked Wishing Well, warm up with ghoulishly good refreshments and hot drinks served from the vintage style coffee kiosk and visit the Gift Shop for frighteningly fabulous souvenirs and gothic gifts. The park has scenic picnic areas alongside the popular River Nidd, an adventure playground, and a museum featuring petrified celebrity items. Access to the adventure playground is subject to weather conditions. Booking is essential.
