Fear in the forest! Terror in the trees!

Details

Will you enter the depths of Dalby to experience true ‘Fear in the forest’? If you dare, explore the spooky woodland and strange goings-on along our Halloween trail. What awaits in the Tunnel of Terror? Who lurks in the dark and what tales will they share?

Come along to meet a rogues’ gallery of despicable characters which include Spooky Spectres and Gruesome Ghouls. Dastardly plots will be threaded together by twisted storytellers from Lady Lumley’s School, gifted in the dark arts of horror and suspense!

There are also live bats, bugs and creepy crafts.
