Halloween Fest this October Half Term

Posted on 17 Oct 2019

Families of all ages are invited to Halloween Fest, two weeks of Halloween-themed events for the October Half Term (19 October – 3 November) at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre. From pumpkin carving to broomstick flight training and a spooky canoe ride, there’s plenty on offer for an action-packed family day out.

Budding young pilots are invited to take part in our Broomstick Flight Training activity. Hop on your broomstick and experience the incredible journey Whooper swans make from Iceland to Martin Mere with our interactive migration obstacle course – look out for predators, pylons and wind turbines!

You can also take part in the pumpkin trail around the grounds. Head to the pumpkin desk when you arrive and pick up a trail card – explore our amazing wetlands to see if you can find all 12 pumpkins and uncover the mystery, spooky TV character – there’s a tasty treat at the end!

Get creative in our pumpkin carving room! We’ve got all the tools you need to make the spookiest face you can in your pumpkin – and, even better, we do all the cleaning up too! We’ve also got loads of crafts in our craft room to keep kids entertained.

You’ll have access to all our usual walks and talks such as the flamingo talk, and our wild walk area will be open for those after a muddy adventure.

With a large play area for the young ones and a café selling tasty treats and warming drinks, a trip to Martin Mere really is fun for all the family! For more details and prices and to book your admission tickets, visit our Halloween Fest page.
