Are you brave enough to enter Preston Park Museum and Grounds on Halloween to encounter your deepest darkest fears?

Intrepid souls are invited to this year’s Halloween Spooky Walk on Tuesday 31 October, where a team of Fear Keepers, need help to keep the deepest, darkest fears under lock and key.

Complete a special mission through the woods and grounds to help to capture all the fears, which have escaped into the grounds of Preston Park.

Tickets are now on sale for the spooky adventure but must be bought in advance from the Rediscover Stockton Shop on Stockton High Street or Preston Park Museum.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Norma Wilburn, said: “This annual event is sure to thrill. There will be ghostly goings on at every turn and the creepy experience will give you a Halloween never to be forgotten!

“The Spooky Walk is always hugely popular and this year’s event will be no exception - if you would like to take part make sure you book your tickets well in advance.”

Tickets cost £4.50 per person and under 5s go free but still need a ticket. Tickets can be booked for the following time slots:
