• Marvel at performances from a fire eater and stilt walkers
• Watch a magic show
• Make some creepy crafts
• See a danger show, including sword swallowing
• Play some traditional games with a Halloween twist
• And more!

Hot drinks and refreshments will be available on site as well as Tiptree Tearooms will be open. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own refreshments to enjoy.
