Prepare to be spooked this October… tickets go on sale tomorrow – Thursday 1 September for this year’s big Halloween events at the Landguard Peninsula in Felixstowe, Suffolk.
For children and their families, the hugely popular Landguard Spooky Day is back at Felixstowe Museum on Saturday 22 October from 1200-1600. Suitable for ages 2-12 years, there is a whole afternoon of activities, including a ‘spooky’ magic show with Steff and Nonsense, Beach Bonkers crafts, face-painting and a quiz trail.
The Museum will be decorated spooky-style, and children are encouraged to come in their best fancy dress with prizes to be won. Tickets are £7.00 for children, £2.00 for adults. Children aged one and under free. All activities included in the one price.
For adults and young people, the Little Fort of Horrors at Landguard Fort. Enter the Zombie Fortress! Following an unidentified infection outbreak in Felixstowe, the ‘URE’ (Undead Research Establishment) has been set up at Landguard Fort. Our dedicated scientists, doctors and military personnel are caring for your infected family and friends.
The ‘URE’ are holding a special Open Evening on Saturday 29 October (1900-2300), so you can explore our facility. Your visit will include a walk through the facilities tunnels and rooms. We hope that there will be no risk to yourself when visiting our facility.
Entrance to the facility walk through is by ‘timed ticket’. You can book a 30 minute arrival slot between 1900 and 2300. Adults and Young People (aged 13-18 years) £8.00. Family Ticket (two adults and two young people) £30.00. All young people must be accompanied by an adult. Sorry… no admittance to anyone under 13 years of age.
Stephen Rampley, Landguard Marketing and Events Co-ordinator says: “Our two big Halloween events provide scary fun for all ages. We recommend you purchase your tickets early as last year both events were a sell-out. This year, for the Little Fort of Horrors event we have introduced a new ‘timed ticket’ to cut down on the waiting times for the walk through. As one of Suffolk’s most haunted locations, Landguard is definitely the place to be this Halloween!”.
