Wizardry will be afoot  at Silverhill Wood, near Mansfield, as rangers conjure up a truly wicked evening of Halloween entertainment!

The Forestry Commission is inviting youngsters to join a spooky walk through the trees, before returning to hear ghostly tales over a campfire with the owls hooting in the background!

The event takes place on 29 October from 6.30pm, but you will need to book to take part on 01623 822447. 

Ranger Vince Lennox said:

“The woods are the perfect place to enjoy a real Halloween thrill and with the campfire blazing we can promise a few spine tingling moments!"

The event is suitable for children between 5 and 15 years old, who must be accompanied by an adult. The cost is £3.  Bring warm clothing and a torch – or even a pumkin!
