spooky walk

Scary goings-on will be happening in Stockton Borough on Friday 31 October to celebrate Halloween.

The 'once upon a nightmare' themed spooky walk will see a host of weird and wonderful characters inhabit Preston Park Museum and Grounds for one night only.

The Halloween spooky walk, which is organised by Stockton Council, is a family event, suitable for people of all ages. It will take visitors through the grounds of Preston Park and the adjoining woods where a strange and spooky world has been created for all those who dare to take part.

Ticketed wristbands are available for three walks, 4.30pm to 5.30pm, 6pm to 7pm and 7pm to 8pm. The earlier walk is a new attraction for this year aimed at young children under five and their families, full of activities and entertainment.

Councillor Ken Dixon, Stockton Council's Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: "For those who dare to take part Preston Park will be the scene for a terrifyingly strange world, where surprises lurk around every corner. Don't miss out on the chance to get tickets for this fun family event which will be sure to excite, engage and ignite the senses."

Ticketed wristbands cost £4.50 each. Under fives are free (though children under five still require a wristband to gain entry). The wristbands are available from Preston Park Museum and Grounds, Rediscover Stockton Shop on Stockton High Street and the Customer Contact Centre at Stockton Central Library.

Access to the event is by Park and Ride 'ghost coaches' which is included in the price of the wristband. There will be pick up points at Tesco car park, Ingleby Barwick, Stockton High Street (outside the Swallow Hotel) and Stockton Wyevale Garden Centre (formerly Peter Barratts). There will be limited disabled parking on site.
