Spooky Halloween Holiday Fun

A creep-tastic week of Halloween fun is on offer for the October half term holiday entertainment at Erewash Museum.

A packed line-up of free arts and craft activities will ensure a ghoulishly good time from Monday 23 to Thursday 26 October, when children can drop in to join the ‘spooky’ celebrations between 11am and 3pm every day.

On Friday 27 October, youngsters can put on their most spooktacular fancy dress costume and join in the fun at the Halloween Party between 11am and 3pm. There will be lots of Halloween themed games such as pin the wart on the witch, a spooky trail around the museum and a chance to see some owls from the Owl Experience. Booking is not required but admission to the party is £2 for ages 2 to 16, under 2s are free.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:

“There will be lots of spine-tingling fun for children at our popular Halloween-themed week at the Museum. We have lots of fun activities lined up and it will be a great place to celebrate the half term holiday.”

Erewash Museum is located in Ilkeston town centre, a short walk from the Market Place. Opening hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm, and Monday to Saturday during school holidays. Admission is free.
