Wyre Forest District Council will host a series of spooky events this Halloween.
Swamp Foot will return this year on Tuesday 27 October at Burlish Top Nature Reserve. Explorers are challenged to make their way through the forest without bumping into Swamp Foot along the way. There will be two opportunities to take on Swamp Foot. The hour long sessions are at 5.30pm and 7pm. Outdoor clothes and sensible shoes are recommended. Those who dare to be scared are asked to meet at Burlish Top car park (off the Kingsway). Available to 9-13 years of age.
Feeling brave? Come along to this year’s Spooky Woodland Trail on Thursday 29 October taking place in Habberley Valley Nature Reserve. Join our Rangers on a guided walk through the forest with owls and bats for company. Open to 5-10 years of age.
Take part in apple bobbing, doughnut dunking and listen to tales in the woodland camp. There are two one hour long sessions starting at 5:30pm and 7pm. Fancy dress is welcome and sensible shoes are recommended. There will be a prize for the spookiest outfit! The car park is the meeting point. BBQ food and hot drinks available to buy.

“This is a great chance for children to explore nature at night time and have a fun Halloween in a safe environment. The Rangers Team and Bewdley Museum always put on fantastic events and they’re very popular. If you’re thinking about joining in, I’d recommend booking a place soon!”
