Children enjoyed spooktacular half-term activities across south Bucks in the lead up to Halloween.

There was plenty of fun to be had, with kids enjoying pumpkin carving and spellbinding Halloween shows at some of the biggest tourist attractions in Bucks, which opened their doors to excited youngsters who were keen to don their scariest disguises and get into the spooky spirit.

At Odds Farm Park, children were treated to pig-a-boo, entertaining shows and pumpkin carving, while at Cliveden House, kids learnt fact from fiction as they joined Cliveden’s elusive bat community for fun and frolic.

The Hellfire Caves were transformed with a macabre selection of props, lighting and creepy music, as well as a number of ravaged souls who prowled the dark passageways.

Children also enjoyed spooky games, colouring competitions and fancy dress competitions, while the special witches workshops saw kids enjoy an hour of potion-making, werewolf banishing, broomstick races and a tour of the caves.

The Eden Shopping Centre also put on a week of Halloween half-term fun, including decorating a Day of the Dead keepsake box to take home, creating a colourful Day of the Dead skull and decorating a colourful wooden spoon skull.
