Halloween Fun Comes to The Walled Gardens of Cannington!
Bridgwater College’s The Walled Gardens of Cannington will be opening its doors once again for its annual Halloween event, from Monday 26 – Saturday 31 October, 10am – 3pm.
Last year’s event saw over 300 children attend, following the pumpkin trail, carving creative pumpkin designs and enjoying their free sweet treats. This year the event, where fancy dress is optional, is expected to grow in size, and additional activities such as creepy croquet, and a visit from some of Bridgwater College’s Animal Management insects will be included. Face painting and gory media make up will be available at a small additional cost.
Children and adults alike will be in for a treat as they explore the Gardens, surrounded by the suitably spooky medieval priory. Many ghostly stories have been shared throughout the years. It is said that a network of tunnels exist beneath the Gardens, leading to various spots in the village so that the nuns and nearby monks could meet in secret, and sightings of ghostly nuns have been reported!
Tickets to the Halloween event cost £4 per child, with accompanying adults, free, which includes entrance to the Gardens, a drink of squash, a biscuit and a pumpkin when purchased in advance or £5 on the door! Tickets can be purchased from the Walled Gardens’ Gift Shop or online at store.bridgwater.ac.uk.
