Things are getting ever so spooky down at the Royal Gunpowder Mills as Professor Nitrate goes on holiday and lets evil twin Dr Gore take over!

Dr Gore’s Spooky Mad Lab is the perfect half term treat for all the little ghosts and ghouls out there – Open DAILY between October 20 and October 28 the team are ready to cause all types of havoc.

The Mad Lab is where you will find the slime station to make all types of glorious goo. And cause a stir creating potions for secret purposes.

You can get creative making spooky stuff - Creating your very own witches hat and miniature broomstick to take home with you and if your broomstick doesn’t get you off the ground try making a rocket instead!

Children and their adults can get into the spooky theme by dressing up in our dress-up area, and take a selfie whilst you’re at it.
