A number of ghoulish half term activities are going down in Welwyn Hatfield for little ones.

Mill Green Mill and Museum will once again host its spook-tacular Halloween event on Wednesday, October 31, from 4.30pm to 7pm.

Children and families are welcome to come dressed in their fiendish finest, be they fairies, witches, skeletons or goblins.

There will be stories read in the historic mill, potions from recipes found in an ancient spellbook, bobbing for apples and spooky surprises in the gruesome sacks afterwards.

The Green Witch will be lurking in the mill to check youngster’s spooky trail answers and could reward them with something devilishly sweet from her bubbling cauldron.

There will be lots of other children’s activities available, plus warm refreshments.

Child entry is £5 (two years up), adults go free.

At the Campus West RollerCity there will be a Halloween theme and music at all sessions on October 31, and a fancy dress competition where spookily dressed skaters could win a prize.

For the wider week of half term, there will be Edible Mosaics at the Welwyn Roman Bath House and Mill Green Mill and Museum will be hosting pumpkin carving, arts and crafts and the chance to play with clay.

A Halloween Craft Special will be put on at no extra charge to keep little ones entertained and there will be a fancy dress competition.
