Spooky treats, from pumpkin carving to a scary walking tour, are being laid on for Halloween by St Albans City and District Council’s museums service.
Families can carve their very own artistic pumpkin at the Clock Tower in Market Place for free from 1pm to 5pm on Wednesday 30 October. If they wish to take the pumpkin home there will be small charge of £3.
The best carved pumpkins will go on display at the Carved Pumpkin Exhibition at the Clock Tower on the night of Halloween on Thursday 31 October from 6pm to 11pm. Entry costs £3.
Adults will be treated to Scary Ghoulish Stories at a special late night opening of the Museum of St Albans for Halloween. They can also wander round the museum from 6pm to 11pm. Tickets cost £8 and include a drink.
You can also go on a self-guided trail round the spooky parts of the city centre on the same night. On the way you will encounter ‘The Lost Souls of St Albans’, scary characters played by local people taking part in the Hauntings Project. Trail packs are available for £5 until 9:30pm from either the Museum of St Albans or Verulamium Museum.
