Families hotfoot it to Harrogate haunting

14 October 2011

Favourite fairy stories with twists in their “tales” will be helping to raise funds for Henshaws later this month in the town’s annual Halloween walk at Valley Gardens.

Harrogate Youth Theatre has once again pitched in to add a touch of drama – as well as fun – to old favourites such as Little red Riding Hood and Hansel & Gretel, writing spooky stories especially for the evening. Henshaws, which offers services for visually impaired and disabled children and adults, is urging families to apply early for tickets as the event is very popular and always sells out.

Starting at 5.45pm on Saturday 29 October, mums, dads and children are invited to listen to spooky stories, take part in Halloween games, and enjoy being led through the beautiful gardens by their ghostly guides. Refreshments will be available from the Valley Gardens based Ripley Ice Cream Café throughout the evening.

Louise Ashton, marketing and communications manager at Henshaws, said: “Our first three Halloween Walks have been a resounding success with local children – and their parents – relishing the chance to get dressed up and come to an organised event which provides such super value. We’d like to thank Harrogate Youth Theatre for coming on board again this year as they do so much to make it a real visual spectacle and great entertainment.”

The walks begin at 5.45 pm and the last one ends at 8.30 pm.

Tickets are just £4 and booking is advisable as places are limited, with last year selling out.
