Halloween at Guisborough Forest

There’ll be no fooling around at Guisborough Forest and Walkway as Halloween takes on an even scarier turn!

The Forestry Commission has teamed up with Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and the Friends of Guisborough Forest to serve up a wicked evening’s entertainment on Sunday 31 October.

Skeletons, floating apparitions, ghouls and ghosts will throng the 900 acre woodland, making it a spine chilling night to remember, complete with a storyteller regaling the unsuspecting with dastardly deeds!

The event which runs from 5pm to 8pm is now one of the most popular staged in the woodland and to cope with demand a park and ride shuttle will operate from Belmont House car park, Rectory Lane, Guisborough.

“With the owls hooting away there’s no better place to get into the Halloween spirit,” said ranger Neil Thirkell.

The cost is £3 adults and £2 children.  Booking is not required and the event meets at the visitor centre at Pinchinthorpe.  There will no on-site parking, except for disabled badge holders.   More information on 01287 631132.
