Famous spooky characters will be taking to the stage in the outdoor forest theatre at Groombridge Place
Famous spooky characters will be taking to the stage in the outdoor forest theatre at Groombridge Place for family friendly fun in October half term between 19 October and 3 November 2019 and at weekends visitors can walk through our interactive ‘Tarantula Display’ where you will see over 30 arachnids if your dare!
West End actors will transform into scary well-known characters to perform a fabulous ‘Spooky Halloween Musical’ in the Enchanted Forest. They will be performing a musical with songs from well-known films including the Addams Family, Little Shop of Horrors, Nightmare before Christmas, Hocus Pocus and many more.
Everyone is encouraged to sing along and don’t forget to come dressed in your best Halloween outfit for a chance to win a daily prize at the end of the Halloween disco after the last performance of the day.
All the family friendly fun begins at 10am each day when characters from the musical will meet visitors before they disappear into the Enchanted Forest for the first of two daily spooky Halloween shows.
Scared of spiders? Don’t be! Arachnids are incredible animals so join us to get a closer insight into these fluffy creatures. This is a chance to meet them up close during the tarantula talk or just enjoy the interactive displays which house 30 tarantulas. An expert will be on hand to answer all your question throughout the day. The event will take place every weekend during the Halloween event.
