What is it?
Families will find plenty of amusingly ghoulish activities at the Red House Museum in Christchurch to keep the children entertained this half-term holiday.
On Thursday, 27th October the former Georgian workhouse, will be hosting a free Skulls, Skeletons and Skull Duggery hands-on workshop where you can learn about the bones and skeletons of our furry and feathered friends; you can then go on to solve the mystery of Who killed the Duck? This bone-rattling event is for children from five years upwards and the workshops take place from 10.30am until 12.20pm.
On Saturday, 29th October from 1.30pm until 3.30pm, families can join a free session to make Halloween lanterns. They can then take the lanterns on the spooky night Ghost Tour of old Christchurch, departing at 6pm from the Red House. Families are encouraged to come dressed in their spookiest costume for this scary tour, which takes in the eerie streets and graveyards of historic Christchurch. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
