WILLIAM'S HALLOWEEN NIGHTS - OCTOBER HALF TERM - Fri Oct 27, Sat Oct 28, and Tues Oct 31, 2023, from 6 pm till late

Are you ready to live on the fright side...? Meet Halloween Nights - the edgier counterpart to William's Daytime Spooky Adventures.

It’s time to dust off your favourite spooktacular costumes and get ready for a night to remember because we’ve got a spooky special lined up for you. Enter a live Scooby Doo-style murder mystery along our Trick or Treat Street "Who Den It?" And be amazed, amused and awed by our exclusive magic show from Wonderville and glow-in-the-dark scarecrow golf, to live performers stalking the site, old school sideshow games with a Halloween twist, DJ sets, amazing food and drink, and pumpkin picking by torchlight.

Who Den It?

Things get a little… darker at William’s Den after 6pm. You might even call it a North Cave Nightmare on Trick or Treat Street. Someone has gone missing…and someone on the Street knows more than they’re admitting to. Your job is to find out who’s telling the truth, who has a cast-iron cauldron of an alibi, and Who Den It? This is an immersive promenade theatre experience that’ll keep you guessing until the news conference reveals all at the end of the night. Will you solve the mystery before the detectives do? There’s only one way to find out…

Witness the Wonderville magic

You won’t believe your eyes. Be prepared to be amazed, amused and awed by our magic show from a very special Magic Circle magician.

Glow-in-the-dark Scarecrow Golf

Whether you’re 4 or 84, our scarecrow golf is fun for everyone. And by night, it gets a little… darker. Think mini golf with glow-in-the-dark balls plus a special Halloween-themed twist with pumpkins aplenty and fun photo ops. The course is designed for all ages and abilities. Have a go at any time during your visit.

Live performers

You never know quite who you might meet after dark at William’s Den. We’ve got some interesting characters roaming around the site - will you find a fire-breather? A juggler? A super-tall stilt-walker?

Spooky sideshow games

Do you remember how fairgrounds used to be? Think Halloween versions of coconut shies, splat the rat, hook a duck and the kind of low-tech fun that kids these days will never have seen before.

DJ and dance

Do you know your Wednesday Addams from your Thriller? It’s time to pull out your best killer dance moves and strut your stuff to tunes from our DJ.

Fabulous *food and drink

You'll love our wood-fired pizzas and homemade ice cream. Add to that our delicious hot chicken pots from the Pit Stop, a dedicated hot chocolate station to indulge in, and of course, a licensed bar plus sweet treats.

Pick up a Pumpkin*

If your Halloween won’t be complete without a pumpkin to take home and carve then you can select one from our mini pumpkin patch to purchase before you go. Grab a headtorch and head out to find the spookiest pumpkins.

*Additional cost applies to these items

William's Halloween Nights runs from 6 pm til late on Friday, October 27, Saturday, October 28 and Tuesday, October 31.

There is no minimum age, but we think it'll be enjoyed the most by children over the age of around 6 as the focus is on food, fun and spooky mystery rather than playing in the den areas click here for more details.

Limited Tickets are on sale now for £15 per person (babies under 12 months go free). When you book, you'll be asked to choose a time to start your Who Den It? experience - you can join in the fun at any time from 6 pm, but you will need to head over to Trick or Treat Street at your allotted time so you don't miss any clues!

If Daytme Spooky Adventures sounds more like your thing, then click here. But you do not want to miss out on this unique evening event this October!
