Dare you enter the witches coven?
That is the question from Beck Isle Museum, Pickering, which is holding a special Hallowe’en event during the half-term holidays.
The attraction’s Victorian schoolroom will be converted into a Witches Coven with visitors invited to pose for a scary photograph with the witch and take an “unlucky dip” in her cauldron.
Other “Scary Things” include spider and hat-themed quiz trails around the museum which, once completed, earn a scary Halloween Certificate signed by the Museum Witch.
Also hidden around the museum are wailing ghosts, skulls with flashing eyes, sticky spiders, pumpkin heads, scary music and much more. There will also be special Hallowe’en pictures and puzzles to colour in, a Pin the Tail on the Witches Cat game, models to be made in different coloured witches ectoplasm as well as Horrible Scary Tales told every hour or so by our resident witch or wizard.
The event runs from Thursday, October 31, to Sunday, November 2, from 11am to 3.30pm. Entry is half price for Ryedale residents on production of proof of residency.
