PUBLISHED: 12:00 19 September 2018 | UPDATED: 16:00 19 September 2018


It’s nearly that time of the year again to root out your scariest costumes and prepare for some tricks and treats. We’ve put together some of the best Halloween events happening this October in Cheshire.

12th October 

Lyceum Ghost Hunt

Prepare for a chilling evening where you could run into a spooky encounter with the Lady in White, the lonely ballerina or the deceased stagehand. Or perhaps you’ll make an eerie discovery of your own as you wander the building which sits on the site of a disused Roman Catholic chapel.

Spooky World 

The incredibly popular Spooky World returns again for another year at Apple Jacks farm. Apple Jacks hosts a whole heap of fun in the day for families and young children, and is then transformed into a thrilling scare-fest at night. If you have what it takes to complete the five scare-mazes all while running from creepy clowns and zombies, then this is the challenge for you.
