Warwick museum set for a spine-tingling transformation

Leamington Editorial 3rd Oct, 2023   0

A MUSEUM in Warwick is set for a spine-tingling transformation for Halloween.

St John’s House is inviting brave souls to explore its rooms and see them like never before during October half-term.

The hair-raising event invites families to venture into the eerie world of Hansel and Gretel, embark on a trail through the house, and cross their fingers that the witch isn’t lurking in the kitchen.

Youngsters can also concoct their own slime to take home, indulge in Halloween-themed crafts, and dabble in the art of potion-making with messy play activities.

And, of course, dressing up in spooky attire is enthusiastically encouraged for both children and adults.

Warwickshire County Council’s community engagement officer Rebecca Coles said: “This is our third year of putting on the St John’s Haunted House and we’re excited to have a new theme of Hansel and Gretel. Every year, we change and add to the experience so that families can enjoy the magic of Halloween time and time again.”
