COVID-19 Precautions

We're back this year with another series of Spooky Shows! Put on your best costume and join a host of creepy characters outside on the Tea Lawn for a spooky surprise! The ‘action’ takes place in front of you, and along the sides so be ready to swivel round! Seating is provided. 

We will assign you a space on the Tea Lawn based on the size of your booking. As the action takes place all around the Tea Lawn everyone will have a good view of the fun! 


Can I order food and drink?

To help with social distancing and avoid queues please take advantage of our Pre-Order Menu. The café will also be offering a great selection of drinks (mulled wine?!) and snacks (spooky biscuits) that can be purchased on the night.

Is it scary?

This obviously depends on your child to a large extent. Factors to consider are:

You will be seated with 80 other people, so less creepy than in a small group. Our actors appear as classic Halloween characters  Some of them are good humoured and fun; some of them are a bit spookier...and there's always at least one 'baddie'. We try to find a balance between making it a bit scary at times – it’s Halloween after all – and also funny and fun.

What age is it for?

Again, every child is different so please read the answers to the questions above as well. On average 5 to 9-year-olds enjoy it the most but we regularly have little ones who have a ball and less cynical over 9’s really enjoy the fun of it too. Children must be accompanied by an adult. 

What happens if it rains?

These shows are outside but demons and witches aren’t worried by a drop of rain so we’ll go ahead regardless unless we judge it to be dangerous. Wear your wellies, put on your waterproofs and make the most of it! 

What happens if the shows are cancelled due to government restrictions? 

If we have to cancel the shows due to a change in government restrictions we will refund you. 

How long does the performance last?

30 minutes

Can I bring babies?

We understand that it’s not always practical to leave a baby at home if you are bringing other children so are happy for you to bring young ones but please note they will need to sit on your lap as it is not feasible to accommodate pushchairs. You do not need to purchase a ticket/space for children under 2 years old. 

Is it wheelchair accessible?

If you or your children are in a wheelchair please call us and we’ll discuss what we can do to make sure you get the best experience.
