Registration fee

Adult Ticket – £10
Child Ticket – £5

This epic 2.5k spooky fun run starts in the castle grounds, giving you gorgeous views of the lake. Then, you’ll go towards the gardens and wooden country park, where there will be spooky surprises waiting for you. But don’t fret – they won’t be too scary for the little ones!

We have lit up the castle and parts of the grounds for this event, and you can expect music and entertainment along the way.

Run, walk or jog, the choice is yours. Fancy dress is optional but strongly encouraged – think bright neon colours and Halloween dress up! – and we’ll be giving a prize for the best costume.

Registration opens at 17:45 and the event starts at 18:30. There isn’t a time limit for completing the route.
