Borde Hill Garden
Borde Hill Lane
From Saturday 17 October to Sunday 1 November Borde Hill Garden, near Haywards Heath, will be holding a spellbinding Halloween.
On selected days, see Magica de Spell, the resident witch, in her lair and say the magic word to receive a prize. Put on your cloak, grab your broomstick, wave your wand and fly across to the ‘Borde Hill Academy of Witches of Wizards’. The spooky trail costs £3 per child.
There’s also a bewitching concoction of activities to keep young witches and wizards entertained throughout half term. On Sunday 25 you can model their own hoot-tastic owl from clay, on Monday 26 and Friday 30 get up close and personal and hold a scary, hairy, creepy crawly or snake. On Tuesday 27 and Saturday 31 why not come along and carve your own spooky pumpkin masterpiece to take home and on Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 there will be the opportunity to get your hands dirty and make a monster mud creature or whittle your own magic wand.
And why not make the most of being outdoors this autumn by joining Borde Hill’s ‘Wilderness Camp’, a family bushcraft experience on Sunday 2 October. Woodland adventurers can try den building, fire lighting, camp cooking and outdoor games between 9.30am and 3pm. The bushcraft day must be pre-booked online and places are limited. Adults are £40, Children £15 or a family of four costs £95.
If young witches and wizards are still bursting with energy, then the Adventure Playground is open with climbing frames, swings and a zip wire.
All activities must be pre-booked online and are in addition to admission. Tickets are sold on a first come first served basis. To comply with current government guidelines, parents are not able to attend the activities but must stay nearby
