All wicked wizards and wizzy witches should head to Tatton Park’s medieval Old Hall this October half term and join in its wizards’ quest to find the lost crystal.
The mission: seek out the spellbinding clues, hone broomstick-flying skills and embark on a quest to recover the lost crystal and restore it to its rightful place, through curious forests and magical theatre.
Rusticus theatre company, which has worked with Tatton Park before, turns a walk into an adventure and the open-air Halloween quest promises to be an “unmissable” family-friendly experience.
Set in the grounds of the medieval Old Hall, which are usually closed to the public, the 90-minute event is socially distanced throughout and includes a broomstick workshop, interactive theatre, and a self-led trail.
There are four quests daily from 26th–31st October. To join in, tickets are on sale at tattonpark.org.uk, but magical places are limited.
Tatton Park’s farm also has its seasonal pumpkin patch. Go along to meet the farmyard favourites and then head off to search for that perfect pumpkin to take home and carve for Halloween. Pumpkins are picked from the field, so prepare to get hands dirty, and wear sturdy footwear.
Again, go to tattonpark.org.uk for more details and to book.
Tatton Park is managed and financed by Cheshire East Council on behalf of the National Trust.
