More great reasons for families to visit Cumbria this October

Filed under Uncategorized

I’ve already mentioned that the Kendal Festival of Food co-incides with October half term this year but, if that alone wasn’t enough, here are some more great reasons to bag our last October vacancy. Currently – but probably not for much longer – we have availability for the week from 21st to 28th October 2011 (Friday-Friday), as well as the 28th-31st October 2011 (Friday-Monday) short break that immediately follows it. Here are some more events that you could enjoy during this time.

Monsters Workshop at Abbot Hall

Just down the road the Kendal, Abbot Hall Art Gallery are running a Children’s Halloween Monsters Holiday Workshop on Wednesday 26th October 2011. The kids can get creative making their own spooky Halloween Monster to take home.

Lancaster Literature Festival

Down the road in Lancaster, it’s the Lancaster Literature Festival which runs from 14th to 23rd October 2011.   If you love reading, you’ll love Litfest. Click here for the full 2011 programme.

Spooky activities at Brockhole

The Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole near Windermere is getting into the Halloween spirit of things with “spooky” activities for the family all week for all the family, including a fancy dress parade.

Mini Broomstick Making Workshops and more at Rheged

Rheged has packed October half term full of family fun with Mini Broomstick Making Workshops, Care of Magical Creatures sessions, Pumpkin Carving, children’s theatre with ‘The Selfish Crocodile’, and two BIG family films, Smurfs 3D and Pirates of the Carribbean 3D (On Stranger Shores) on their huge 3D screen.

Witches & Wizards Week at Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway

A week of witches, wizards, ghosts and ghouls! Starting at Haverthwaite, why not explore the perils of the haunted carriage, then travel along the haunted stretch of track from Haverthwaite to Newby Bridge Halt that, as legend has it is the home of the headless stationmaster. Spooky ghost trains run daily, so purchasing a combined ticket you can arrive in style at Lakeside and join in the spooky fun at the Lakes Aquarium before returning back to Haverthwaite. Children in full fancy dress are admitted free of charge when accompanied by a fee-paying adult.
