Events for October 2019

The Forgetful Witch

19th Oct - 27th Oct from 10.30am - 6.00pm

Willow the Witch is well-known for being the most forgetful enchantress in her class. On a recent school trip to Penshurst Place, she failed to notice a large hole had appeared in her satchel, and as she wandered the gardens all of her magical belongings fell out! This Halloween we need you to find Willow’s magical items and unravel the hidden mystery within!

Tread down a leaf-covered path through the winding woods and see the pumpkins that mark the entrance to the witch’s lair. Settle in underneath our yurt, hot chocolate in hand, and prepare to face off with the ugly witch of Penshurst Place as she emerges from her forest den to tell you from her own perspective, the real story of Hansel and Gretel!  Afterwards, you’ll be able to enjoy roasting a marshmallow over our open fire before continuing you walk through the woodland trail!
