Halloween at Skelf Island
Event Type: Event for all

Join us at Castle Howard this October half term for a Halloween experience like no other.

Across the dormant water of the Great Lake lies our new adventure playground, Skelf Island and the naughty Skelves who live here are up to no good. Are you brave enough to join Corvus the Crow on his mischievous woodland adventure to find out the seasonal secrets of his hidden world?

Skelf Island's ingenious treetop nest structures, connected by rope bridges, slides, nets and climbing equipment will be transformed with atmospheric lighting and effects. Skelf characters will lead daily activities across the island, along with face painting and an outdoor trail with a prize for each child at the end*

No age restriction just a brave restriction.

*The Halloween trail will start from 19th October. A gang of live Skelves will be in residence on 19th-20th October and from 26th October - 3rd November, meet them at the Time Capsule on the South Front at 10:30am, 12noon, 1.30pm and at 3pm.
