oxford castle ghost fest

We've teamed up with Oxford Castle and Prison to give you the chance to win a Spooktacular Potion Workshop this Halloween.

Ghost Fest returns to Oxford Castle and Prison in 2018 with a selection of events to celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year. From Trick or Treating around the prison to midnight tours of the castle, there is plenty of fun for all the family this Halloween.

In our Halloween competition we're giving you the chance to win two children's tickets to celebrate Halloween with a real Worlock in one of Oxford's spookiest buildings. 

The Prize

Our friends at Oxford Castle and Prison are offering the chance for you to win two child tickets to Spooktacular Potions. Children will join the castle's very own Worlock in the 900 year old crypt and will learn how to;

  • Concoct their very own magic potion
  • Decorate a potion bottle
  • Enjoy Halloween fun and crafts

The Worlock's workshops last approximately one hour and are suitable for children aged 5-12 years. Accompanying adults can attend for free.
