October is already flying by, so here is our round-up of the best ways to celebrate spooky season across Buckinghamshire this weekend.

There is something for everyone this October in Buckinghamshire – from those who like their Halloween full of frights to youngsters looking for more treats than tricks.

The Bucks Free Press has rounded up a list of the best things to do in Bucks this pre-Halloween weekend.

In a brand-new Halloween event, local drama groups are coming together at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre in Aylesbury to stage an interactive rendition of ‘Baba Yaga: The Witch in the Woods’ throughout both Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29. And that’s not all, with an interrailing Dracula offering families steam train rides and a spooky Macbeth-themed hunt around the centre.

In a slightly tamer seasonal activity, Odds Farm Park near Beaconsfield is giving children the chance to get involved as it celebrates its annual Pumpkin Festival between October 21 and October 29. Little ones will be able to choose a mini wheelbarrow, carefully select their own pumpkin and unleash their creativity in a designated carving corner.

Meet the tradesmen, merchants and highwaymen who have frequented Wycombe High Street in years long past – operating as it did as a central stopping point for coaches between London and Oxford. If you’re itching for a brush with the paranormal, tickets for the Wycombe Ghost Walk are available to book now for £11 on Saturday, October 28.

Wycombe Food Hub is throwing a Halloween party for all the family this year at The Phoenix Bar on Bridge Street on the evening of Saturday, October 28. For £6 per adult and £3 per child, or £15 for a two adult and two children family ticket, you can compete for best costume, try your hand at apple bobbing and cupcake decorating and get out on the disco floor.

Looking for a spooky trail you can bring the little ones along to? Widmer Farm Park in Princes Risborough is bringing back its Halloween Pumpkin Trail for the whole of the October half-term week. Participation is free alongside the park’s £3.50 admission tickets and treats are guaranteed at the end of the trail.
