Spooktacular fun at Festival Place


Festival Place is your place for a spooktacular Halloween this year, with a week full of family fun activities.

Kicking off the spooky fun on Monday 24th October, the Basingstoke Discovery Centre will be hosting a special two-hour Witches and Broomsticks workshop from 1pm. Here, little ones will have the chance to create a mini broomstick from real sticks and twigs with willow craft expert, Judith Needham. Once the brooms are ready, children will then be able to join Basingstoke Discovery Staff to create a witch or wizard to ride it! Attendance costs just £5 (Adults free) and advanced booking at www.hants.gov.uk/bsc is essential.

On Tuesday 25th October, they’ve got the purrfect way to beat the half-term boredom, with a Cat Care Talk from 2pm for £2 (Adults free) at the Basingstoke Discovery Centre. Whether you already have a cat or kitten, are thinking of getting one in the future, or just a lover of cats, everyone is welcome to come along and find out all about responsible pet ownership and the welfare of cats. This event is recommended for children aged five plus and advanced booking is again essential.

There will be crime investigation entertainment at the centre on Friday 28th October, from 11am-1pm, with their CSI Kids event. Under the guidance of CID staff, children will work their way through a series of clues using real forensic techniques to solve a Halloween Crime. Aimed at children aged seven plus, this event is priced at £12 (Adults free) and advanced booking is required.

Rounding off the week on Saturday 29th October, there will be a spooky mad scientist’s laboratory in Porchester Square from 12pm-6pm. Full of creepy creative fun, the event will feature face painting and trick or treat bag decorating for all ages.

Customers will also have the chance to take a funny frightening fake photo of their head in a jar. Photos shared with #spookyfp on social media will then be in the running to win a spooky prize.
