Don't miss your chance to join in the frightening fun this year at Preston Park Museum and Grounds’ Halloween Spooky Walk.

Tickets are selling fast for the annual event which takes place on Thursday, October 31 – with the early walk for those under-fives almost sold out.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT THIS YEAR’S SPOOKY WALK?

The infamous Doctor Montgomery is working in secret to invent a cure on an unexplained viral outbreak which has spread across Stockton-on-Tees.

Councillor Jim Beall, Cabinet Member for Health, Leisure and Culture, said: “This year’s theme is a weird science spooktacular. Visitors to the park will be asked to explore the nooks and crannies of Doctor Montgomery’s laboratory as he conducts his wild and wonderful experiments.

“Beware, unexplained noises and terrifying rumours may keep even the most intrepid investigators away!”

WHERE DO I GET TICKETS?

Tickets are available now from Preston Park Museum reception (open Tuesday to Sunday) and Rediscover Stockton Shop, Stockton High Street.

Tickets are available for the following times:
3pm – 4.30pm: Suitable for children under five and those of a more sensitive nature
