There are some spooky goings-on at Croxteth Hall as Halloween approaches.
A ghost hunt, a haunted sleepover and some psychic investigations all feature on its programme of events.
And they are certainly proving popular as the Halloween events – along with the Hall and Country park’s other attractions – have seen families flock there with a 20 per cent increase in visitors during the half term week.
Councillor Peter Mitchell, Mayoral Lead on Parks, said “Some places go all out to be totally terrifying but we recognise that these can be a bit much for many families, so we provided; a very popular less scary Ghost Hunt around the Hall, a spine-tingling visit to the Walled Garden and, for the aficionados of the paranormal, a tour of the mansion with psychic investigators to take place on Halloween Night itself. ”
More family fun is being provided with a Pumpkin Trail on the farm and the Rangers have been carving pumpkins and making Halloween masks too. A charity overnight ‘sleepover’ sold out months ago, reflecting the house’s reputation as a ‘really haunted Hall’.
The Park staff have particularly welcomed visitors that dress up to come along, totally getting into the “spirit” of the occasion.
