Halloween Events n 1066 Country


Halloween is coming – so be prepared to be scared!

Bobbing for apples, trick or treating, carving Jack o’Lanterns, Halloween has many weird traditions and despite popular belief, Halloween is not just another American import, it is actually a very British affair.  For thousands of years, the ancient Celts celebrated Halloween – or Samhain as it is truly known, as one of the most important dates of the Celtic faith.

Many attractions in 1066 Country will be holding their own particular ghoulish event:
