There’s a chill in the air, which can mean only one thing, Halloween is almost here. Fortunately, residents across the borough are in for a treat, with a series of spooktacular events taking place at Dinton Pastures Country Park and Wokingham Borough Libraries.
If you’re after a fang-tastic evening event, look no further than Dinton Pastures Halloween Night Adventure. Gather your mini monsters for a guided walk around Sandford Lake and keep your eyes and ears peeled for the flutter of bats swooping through the night sky.
After the wildlife wander, take turns toasting marshmallows and warm up with a delicious hot chocolate. The spooky adventures will take place across half-term, with tickets available for the 26, 27 and 31 October.
Next up, if your little ones love creepy crawlies fun, head down to Wokingham and Lower Earley Libraries on 31 October. Rangers will be on hand from Dinton Pastures, as they host a Halloween-themed Outdoor Let’s Explore event. Kids can learn all about bats and other creatures of the night. The session will conclude with a fearsome reading of Cathy MacLennan’s; Spooky, Spooky, Spooky!
The ghoulish fun doesn’t end there. Its double trouble at Wokingham Library’s Get Arty event, with little monsters invited to take part in a range of frightful arts and crafts activities. The activity will take place on 1 November.
“There is a whole host of Halloween fun to be had across the Wokingham Borough this half-term. We’re inviting families to stop in for a spell of spooktacular fun at both Dinton Pastures and our Wokingham Borough Libraries,” said, Cllr Parry Batth, executive member for environment and leisure.
“We’re certain our events will not only provide great entertainment for your kids, but also prove educational too. We look forward to extending our ghostly greetings.”
