Birmingham is Halloween ready

From family fun to spooky visits of some of the city’s most haunted places, visitors to Birmingham Museums will be in for a treat, and trick, in October half term.

There will be spooky science activities at Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum, and a chance to visit the museum after hours, while Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery will be hosting a fun free Monster Party for little ones who love to dress up.

Birmingham Museums Heritage Sites will also be opening their doors for creepy crafts, ghost hunts and scary tales.

Here’s what you can’t miss this Halloween…

Monster Party at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

Parents can take their little mummies, witches and vampires along to enjoy a free Monster Party at Waterhall at BMAG, on Wed 25th October from 2.00pm – 4.00pm. There will be music, dancing and ghoulish games.

There will be lots of Halloween fun throughout the week including gruesome object handling and a spooky portrait studio to capture your costume in the portrait booth of fear.

For children who love to get crafty, head to BMAG at the weekend (Sat 21st & Sun 22nd October) for Fiendish Drawbots. Use art and technology to create your own drawing robot, and get creative and turn your robot into your own spooktacular creature.

Spooky Science Week at Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum

At Thinktank, prepare for an evening full of tricks and treats as the museum opens its doors after hours for a Spooky Science Night on Saturday 28th October, 6 – 9pm. With a full evening of spellbinding fun planned, children can get dressed as their favourite creature and take part in eerie experiments, a science of fright show, and meet some real life creepy crawlies with an expert animal handler. Head along in fancy dress to be entered into a fantastic prize draw on the night!

Hair-raising Heritage Sites

Visit the Birmingham Museums’ Heritage Sites throughout half term for hair-raising fun, including Aston Hall’oween at Aston Hall where you can see the Hall transformed into a haunted mansion from Friday 27th – Sunday 29th October 2017.

Visitors will also be able to learn all about the great plague at Blakesley Hall, and find out about all the medicines the doctor would have used to treat those who were struck down by the bubonic plague. There will be special themed trails, quizzes and fascinating facts. 

Spooky spiders, skeletons and ghosts are also set to move into Sarehole Mill. Take part in the Haunting Halloween Trail and find each of the creepy ghouls and solve the clues to claim a prize.

And at Soho House, the doors of the spooky cellars of the historic Georgian property will be opened for a family-friendly Halloween tour. Do you dare to take the tour? Taking place from 25th – 26th October.
