Spooky Trails and Beastly Bugs at Pensthorpe this Halloween

26th October to 3rd November 2013

Pensthorpe Wildlife & Gardens near Fakenham in Norfolk is giving visitors the chance to discover the creepy side of nature this Halloween with its Trick or Tweet event running from Saturday 26th October to Sunday 3rd November 2013 between 10am and 5pm.

Visitors will be surrounded by pumpkins and lanterns and be quizzed on their wildlife knowledge as they try their luck and embark on a scary Bug Walk around the Reserve. Visitors are encouraged to discover more about the bugs, beasts and bats that share our world. Plus, spot some spooky ‘ghost’ pumpkins on the way!

Mark Noble, Commercial Manager at Pensthorpe Wildlife & Gardens, comments:

“This event is a real favourite with our younger visitors and features creepy crawlies which, although not the prettiest or fluffiest of our wildlife, are all harmless and loveable! Wrap up warm and discover the grizzlier side of nature at Pensthorpe with lots of activities to keep the whole family entertained.”

Families can also explore WildRootz; the new £1million play area at Pensthorpe comprising of over 30 individual items of play equipment. There’s shallow streams to splash through, dens to build, underground burrows to explore, a giant 12m high winding slide tower called ‘The Worm’, ‘The Flyway’ zipwire, trees to climb and more gentle areas for younger children including a sandpit.

In addition, Halloween marks the start of the popular daily winter floodlit feeds at 4pm. Watch the birds flock for an eerie and magical insight into the range of rare and colourful birds Pensthorpe attracts, all just before dusk sets in. Sit in the Viewing Gallery or blow away those spooky cobwebs in the outdoors, whilst learning about the different breeds of birds and how to feed them all on this fully commentated event.

Entry to Trick or Tweet is included in the regular Pensthorpe entrance price.
