There's still time for brave souls wishing to encounter their deepest darkest fears to get tickets for this year’s Halloween Spooky Walk.

Tickets are selling fast for Preston Park Museum and Ground’s Halloween Spooky Walk, which takes place on Tuesday, 31 October.  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to complete the special mission through the woods and grounds, helping a team of Fear Keepers capture the deepest, darkest fears and keep them under lock and key.

The remaining tickets for the spooky event are for the 6pm to 7pm and 7pm to 8pm time slots. Tickets must be bought in advance from the Rediscover Stockton Shop on Stockton High Street or Preston Park Museum. Tickets cost £4.50 per person and under 5s go free but still need a ticket. 

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Norma Wilburn, said: “Come along for a thrilling Halloween experience. There are still tickets left for the later time slots so don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy a ghoulish evening of surprise and intrigue!”

Access to the park for this event will be by the special Park and Ride ‘Fear Coaches’ only, which is included in the event ticket.  There is strictly no parking available on site within Preston Park Grounds and Museum or in surrounding residential areas.

Pick up points for the free ‘Fear Coaches’ are: 

• Tesco car park, Ingleby Barwick, TS17 0WA

• Yarm High Street (outside Yarm Town Hall), TS15 9AH 

‘Fear Coaches’ will run frequently during the evening and at regular intervals throughout each hourly slot to return visitors to the pick-up points.  Please arrive at your chosen pick-up point with sufficient time to travel to the Park.  Limited disabled parking is available on site.
